  • Random a walk, we entered this gallery. We had the chance to visit with one of the artists. The works are often poignant and touching to better understand the life of these young artists and khmer art in general. Real talents are hiding here! We can only advise a visit.

  • Me back to Battambang. I did not fail to return to this gallery. New paintings and once again emotion that hugs you. I spoke with the artists who live locally (Seyha, Chankreen) and I had the chance to meet Thang Sothea, who does not usually live in Battambang. I wore then long hours this emotion.

  • On 3 levels, presenting works of young contemporary Cambodian artists: paintings, sculptures, interesting and very well put in value in this modern and well presented place. A beautiful real discovery!

  • Very interesting gallery showcasing the talents of 4 contemporary cambodian artists, with a selection of paintings and sculptures inspired by their common experiences of growing up in Cambodia, exploring themes such as love, family acrimony, loneliness, poverty and corruption
  • Went walking from the centre and it takes 15min or so. Mark it well on your map as there is no signs! It's not enormous, but it takes easy an hour and the pieces are full of power and the passion that only people with such a difficult past can convey The musem has no support other than the buyers and visitors, but it does a lot to help revive art in a country where it was basically assassinated
  • Quite interesting place! If you visit Phare PS School (the circus show), you may meet some of the classmates of these four artists. I spent about 45 minutes here. The staff was friendly and talkative, and the art very very powerful. I personally loved Thang Sothea's work the best for his diverse art style, from raw, energetically-charged sensual paintings to subtle and minimalist ones using symbols and the Khmer script, each piece brought me on a journey. Amazing!
