(b.1980 , Pursat Province, Cambodia)
Long Lavy is originally from Pursat province, but spent most of his childhood in Kandal province, just outside of Phnom Penh city. He began studying watercolor in his teens and gradually honed his skills to create idyllic countryside landscapes and depict chaotic city spaces. A father of two, former kickboxer, and tuk tuk driver by trade, his work speaks of a longing for his family who resides in Prey Veng province while he is stuck in the city trying to catch a customer.
Lavy will have his first solo exhibition, "Dreamscapes" at Chinese House opening Thursday, July 4, 2019 from 6 PM in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
