Having moved to Phnom Penh four year ago, this year we finally launched our ‘Candid Cambodia’ series of artprints and greeting cards throughout Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. One of the most amusing things we see in Cambodia, is how a small motorbike can ferry a family of four and much more. And this is the inspiration for the “Pile-Up” art concept, which is the common tread for this series. We don’t really know how best to describe the series other than it is a part-Studio-Ghibli, part-Where’s Wally (or Waldo for you American folks) way of intepreting Cambodia, rendered in a digital pen and ink style reminiscent of the Tintin comics. (That’s quite a mouthful!)
Stay tuned for more as we have quite a few other interesting concepts to extend this collection further, and it will be a refreshing take on what’s peculiar in Cambodia.
