PHOTO GALLERY - Cambodian Art
Phnom Penh - January 2013
Stylized Color Painting of Jayavarman VII
While in Phnom Penh I tried to visit their Royal University Of Fine Arts but was not sure whether they granted entry to outsiders. The few people at the compound there were not sure. So I did the next best thing.

I went over to the shops opposite the university. Over there they sell paintings by the artists/students. I bought some paintings there, so they allowed me to take photos of the others. The photos I took could be at angles or blocked by other paintings, I have cropped accordingly. So it is best to go there and view for yourselves.
