Street Life Phnom Penh by Chhan Dina @ Java Arts, Phnom Penh.

Paintings and Sculptures by Chhan Dina

Exhibition opening June 17th – 6:00 am to 10:00 pm – Runs until July 24th, 2011 at Java Main Gallery, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

This exhibition of abstract paintings and sculptures by contemporary artist Chhan Dina, depicts the bustling streets of Phnom Penh as sites of contrasting experience. It considers the streets as the backdrop of people’s existence; as a place to work, rest, socialise, and for young children to play. Colourful portraits of everyday activities sit against starker images of urban poverty. These images highlight the city’s streets as literal and symbolic pathways, taking people to diverging and sometimes bleak places. Read More on the Java Arts website

The art of dirt: cultivating prosperity in the developing world

02 January 2014

I’m so thrilled to be part of “The Art of Dirt” exhibition in Denver, USA (September 1st – 25th). Artwork from all round the world was brought to Denver especially for this show and will be offered for sale through an online auction with proceeds benefiting IDE. The wonderful team at IDE Cambodia visited me in Phnom Penh and left with two of my paintings. I’m so excited to see my works displayed beside other exceptionally high quality paintings and of course I’m very proud to be representing Cambodia.

The exhibition provides a unique window on rural life in the developing world. The show presents a range of images of rural markets and farming, with works from established and emerging artists from Central America, Asia and Africa, in a variety of styles from semi-abstract to representative. Please share the link with your friends and if you get a chance support the IDE organization. They provide low-cost water technologies, access to better seeds and growing techniques, and better connections to markets. Help make a difference in the developing world, cultivate prosperity in Africa, Asia and Latin America and get some amazing artwork too!

One of my paintings at the auction can be found here: Khmer Living and there is the main art of dirt website

Cross the Line Exhibition

30 December 2013

Don’t miss an opportunity to view my latest solo exhibition ‘Cross the line’.

My body of work consists of acrylic, enamel, ink and oil paintings that go beyond traditional images, boundaries and techniques. I experiment with paint in ways that are rarely explored by artists in Asia.

I’m certain my display of illusive imagery that encompasses life and everyday activities in Cambodia will surprise and excite you.
