Description

This activity gives the opportunity to visit to the gallery of Mr. Theam, a talented artist and designer, who carries on Cambodia’s rich artistic traditions.

At his studio, Mr. Theam teaches about Khmer culture through art and the efforts being made to keep their traditions alive in the next generation of artisans. Theam returned to Cambodia in 1995 after studying in France for several years at the Ecole Boule and Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. For over 10 years, he was the artistic director of “Artisans d’Angkor,” a Cambodian arts and crafts company dedicated to the revival and preservation of Cambodian traditional knowledge.Theam’s house is truly an artist’s studio; it includes a workshop and a gallery in which his collections are displayed. Above all, the studio welcomes artist apprentices trained by Theam himself. Here, young Cambodian artists can acquire an understanding of traditional Cambodian aesthetics and culture.

Theam’s work is defined by nature in transformation, infused with the Khmer culture, and contributes to the revival of Cambodian life after decades of war and silence. His contemporary creations, imbued with Khmer influence, give birth to some wonderful artefacts, such as customized elephants originating from Kompong Chhnang, customized meditation statues, and triptychs.
