Peap TARR finds his artistic roots in the graffiti art culture but blends it with his New Zealand and Cambodian heritage to create a unique form of street art. His sinister, yet tranquil, works of art have become his signature style, and have caught the attention of art lovers from around the world, and also gained the respect of many of his art peers. His work has appeared in various international art magazines and galleries. Peap’s street art is unique. It exists in a world where light and dark battle, yet coexist to balance each other and contrast each other. He works almost exclusively in black and white, and his tribal patterns owe as much to his New Zealand heritage as to his Cambodian ancestry.
Lisa MAM is Cambodia’s first female Urban Street Artist and has exhibited nationally and internationally. Most notably, she participated in the charity auction officiated by Lionel Gosset of Christie’s Paris held in Cambodia in 2012, the Lotus Arts De Vivre in Bangkok, and the Bed Supper club Bangkok. Lisa aka “Lil Dots” is a rising star in the rapidly changing art scene of Phnom Penh. She is a trailblazer, and is helping to develop a new urban art movement. She hopes one day that Khmer Graffiti and Street Art will be seen all around the world giving a boost to the rebirth of a vibrant Khmer arts tradition.
Peap TARR trouve ses racines dans la culture “graffiti” mélangeant son héritage neo- zélandais et cambodgien pour créer un art de la rue tout à fait unique. Son travail, macabre bien que paisible est devenu son style. Sa signature a attiré l’attention des amoureux des Arts de La Rue à travers le monde et le respect de ses pairs. Ses œuvres paraissent dans toutes sortes de magazines internationaux et dans des Galeries. L’art de La Rue de Peap est unique. Parfaitement équilibré coexiste dans son travail la bataille du noir et de la lumière. Son travail est généralement en noir et blanc. Ses dessins tribaux ont plus avoir avec son héritage néo zélandais que khmer.
Lisa MAM est la première femme cambodgienne graffeuse. Elle a exposé aussi bien dans son pays qu’à l’international. Elle a participé en 2012 à la première vente aux enchères caritative orchestrée par Lionel Gosset de chez Christie’s Paris. Elle a également exposé chez Lotus Art de Vivre à Bangkok et au Bed Supper club de Bangkok. Lisa dite “Lil Dots” est une étoile montante qui a rapidement changé la scène Phnompenhoise. C’est une pionnière qui aide à développer dans son pays un courant “Graffeurs”. Le rêve de Lisa c’est de voir dans les rues du monde entier le travail des graffeurs khmers, ce qui donnera un sérieux coup de pouce à l’art traditionnel khmer.

Born in Prey Veng in 1973, SOK Chan began work as an apprentice in an NGO run program to learn the rapidly disappearing art of carving buffalo horn. His great talent was quickly recognized, and after only six months in the program, he left to become the assistant to his master. Unfortunately, due to a lack of market demand for his work, he abandoned his art to become a construction worker. Ten years later, after exploring renewed interest in his art, he decided to return to his first love. Today, he employs seven carvers who work hard to keep up with an ever-growing order book. SOK Chan produces mostly custom made pieces of jewelry, but also creates his own designs. He remains one of the few Cambodian artisans who still work the beautiful black and white buffalo horn, and thanks to his willingness to pass along his knowledge, he is helping to revitalize a traditional skill and art form that were almost lost.
Né à Prey Veng, en 1973, SOK Chan a commencé à travailler avec une ONG à l’âge de 16 ans, à apprendre l'art de la sculpture sur corne de buffle. Il est si talentueux qu’il quitte le programme d’apprentissage au bout du six mois pour devenir l’assistant de son maître. Malheureusement, à cause du manque de demande sur le marché, il abandonne son art pour devenir maçon. Dix ans plus tard, constatant l’intérêt renouvelé pour son art, il décide de retourner à ses premières amours. Il reste un des derniers cambodgiens qui travaillent encore la corne de buffle et perpétue ainsi un savoir ancestral.

The offspring of the union of a Cambodian, Songmala, and a Frenchman, Flavien Lambert, Tendance Khmère is a gallery featuring Cambodian silk : raw silk, organza, and smooth silk.
It was in Paris, in the heart of St-Germain des Prés first of all, and then in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap that Flavien and Songmala began to weave their cocoon in color. Tendance Khmère specializes in the creation of decorative articles.
Flavien, the designer, combines the elegance of traditional Khmer silk with other materials from the four corners of the earth. An almost infinite range of cloth is turned into cushions, bedspreads, curtains, poufs, purses and table settings. The color palette is immense, and crossing the threshold of Tendance Khmère opens up an whole new art of living.
Tendance Khmère has succeeded in refining, for contemporary Western tastes, the ancestral artisanship which is being reborn.

Né à Takeo en 1968, Theam grandit au Cambodge pendant le régime khmer rouge. Il quitte le Cambodge pour la France en 1980, ce fut une seconde naissance. De 1989 à 1994, il a étudié à l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris en arts visuels, et a obtenu un diplôme en arts appliqués et en design de l’Ecole Boulle.

Born in 1980, French artist Théo VALLIER has lived and worked in Phnom Penh since 2007 where he explores the theme of streets and their movement. He has exhibited in France (Paris and Marseille) and Cambodia, enjoys working in multiple media and continues to experiment with different techniques in painting, graphic art, Graffiti, photography and silk-screen.
In addition to painting on canvas, Théo VALLIER developed a pictorial style of painting on sheets of rusted metal in order to capture the aesthetic feel of the contemporary urban environment. His work expresses a particular perception of urbanism that reminds the viewer of the impermanence of all things and forms, and pushes the viewer deeper into the image and closer to the raw materials. The artist finds in the city a singular material, rust – created by erosion and the passage of time – and employs it almost as a living material. In his images of Phnom Penh, he creates a unified feel by using common materials, colors and characteristics. He creates a feeling of depth in this works of art by layering different materials. The first layer is the support structure, the sheet of metal with its inevitable oxidation. White is added in successive layers to mask the rust, that in turn attacks the paint, and then is once again covered by more paint, and so on…. For Théo, “a representation in art of the interaction between man and nature.”
Plasticien Français, né en 1980, a exposé en France (Paris et Marseille) et au Cambodge. Il vit et travaille à Phnom Penh depuis 2007, où il continue à explorer le thème de la rue et de ses mouvements. Artiste multidisciplinaire il ne cesse de faire des allers retours entre différentes techniques tel que la peinture, le graphisme, le Graffiti, la photo et la sérigraphie.
A côté de la peinture sur toile, Théo VALLIER développe une approche picturale sur plaques de métal rouillées, pour retrouver une matière et un esthétisme présents à l’état naturel dans l’univers urbain contemporain. Son travail exprime une perception particulière de l’urbanité et veut rappeler l’impermanence de toute chose et de toute forme, pousser le spectateur à plonger dans l’image et à se rapprocher de la matière.
Le plasticien trouve dans la ville une matière singulière, la rouille, produit de l’usure et du passage du temps. Il se l’approprie avec l’idée de la travailler comme un matériau vivant. A partir de ses clichés de Phnom Penh, il revisite une vision singulière de la ville en reliant une matière, une couleur et un trait. Les images sont constituées de différents plans qui, une fois superposés, créent la profondeur. Le premier est le support lui même, c’est a dire le métal, sa matière, son oxydation. Le blanc, par couches successives, masque en partie la rouille qui, le temps faisant son œuvre, attaque la peinture, qui elle-même, couvre à nouveau la rouille, ainsi de suite… Interaction entre homme et nature via la matière.

Christine Gauthier settled in Cambodia in 1996. With her advertising background, a passion for bric-a-brac, she creates objects; her enthusiasm for jewelry begins with her discovery of nature, and she seeks to interpret, in a different way, what she sees. In February 2002, she created the Water Lily workshop. In love with Cambodia’s natural phenomena, discovering flowers and trees and photographed details that have inspired original pieces, much as a painter might mix colors to give new life to a scene, an inspiration, imagesof what surrounds her and that she has kept in her heart. Works that are unique, or limited for others, designed and put together by hand, these pieces reflect the soul of Cambodia and endow her jewelry with a spirit of memory, a souvenir. Using clever mixtures of colors and materials, she creates a world unique to the Water Lily workshop: freshness, originality, and the pigment of color dearest to her eyes: the green of the rice fields. She creates on command original pieces for weddings, or simply an outfit, including a purse and wide-brimmed hat. Christine Gauthier plays with her materials, immersing herself in her experiences, and fully lives her passion through the furious desire to interpret what is stored in her memory.

“SANYA” Sandy Kin Lim &Annya Ly
Annya Ly’s bio: I was born in Cambodia on July of 1979 near Siem Reap. At the age of 5, our family left Cambodia for Khao I Dang Refugee Camp in Thailand. After 4 years there, our uncle sponsored us to America. Growing up as a child, I’ve always liked the outdoors and nature. I am relaxed and happy when I work with my hands. My perfect day of Zen would be to spend the whole day creating jewelry or scrapbooking without any interruptions.
During high school, I discovered that I enjoyed arts and crafts and learning about other cultures. I dreamed of traveling to different destinations. Years later, my dream became a reality when I travelled abroad to different destinations within Southeast Asia to promote jewelry for Lucky Jewelry. I graduated from Sacramento University with a B.A in Liberal Studies. In 2007, my family and I relocated to Phnom Penh due to personal reasons. This was when I was introduced to gemstones, jewelry and designs.
My inspirations are based on my experiences and nature. Our specialties are gemstones handcrafted jewelry that is extravagant and unique. When I first arrived in Cambodia, I noticed that our designs were very floral. To some, they were considered “ornate,” “delicate,” and “sweet.” To others, they were “unique.” Over the years, I’ve worked with my goldsmiths to produce some of the most beautiful pieces.
To reflect, my introduction to jewelry was coincidental, but my love for designing and creating personal pieces wasn’t. In the future, I would love to have many collections that intertwine Cambodian and modern designs to create one-of-a-kind jewelry that will be cherished and loved by many.
Sandy Kim Lim’s bio: Sandy Kim Lim was born on April 1981. She has three brothers and has lived in the USA for seven years before returning to Cambodia to manage Lucky Jewelry. Sandy graduated from Gemological Institute of America(GIA) as a Graduate Gemologist and received her Jewelry Management Certificate in 2006. Sandy got her start in the jewelry business since she was fifteen helping her parents with their jewelry store. Upon graduation from GIA, she returned to Phnom Penh and has been managing Lucky Jewelry for over six years. Sandy had worked closely with numerous goldsmiths and customers to design some of the beautiful jewelry. Her specialty is engagement and wedding rings.
