The latest artwork by Chhim Sothy will be launched in an exhibit at the Meta House Gallery at 6 pm on July 12. Born in Kandal Province, Chhim is renowned for his paintings and sculptures that can be found in many venues and hotels around Phnom Penh. The latest exhibit will showcase about Phnom Penh’s recent city development.
After observing years of Cambodia’s rapid urban development, Chhim has noticed the wave of mass migration to the city and the rise of the middle class. Reflected on the canvas, Chhim seeks to explore the depths of such change in buildings, bridges, and roads, presented in nearly 20 pieces of artwork.
The exhibit will be held until August 8.
