  1. Love your post! I love to read about inventive and helpful art events. This is a wonderful way to expose. I loved reading the part about art being brought to the villagers for visual arts culture. Great!! Wish I could be there!

    • Hi Calonie,

      Thank you very much for your comment. I’m also stunned with the art-scene here it’s very diverse, open-minded and courageous….you can find from the most traditional till the most contemporary, from sketch, pencil draw till recycled electronic. Just amazing that it is all in Siem Reap. I will write and take lots of pics of Angkor Art Explo and definitely put it on my blog. I truly hope you can come&visit Siem Reap someday! Cheers.
