Hom Rith (b. 1986, Kampot, Cambodia)
Hom Rith is a new collaborating Open Studio Cambodia artist who draws a new series of personal work. His latest piece “Eternal Dream” describes his childhood experience of watching the Buddhist temple painters all day at his village pagoda then going to tend to his cows in the field but everywhere he looked were visions of the paintings he loved so much.
Hom Rith now resides in Siem Reap where he already has a successful watercolor career painting the temples of Angkor Wat but joined Open Studio Cambodia to develop his conceptual skills, work in collaboration with an artistic community, and reach a wider audience.
