The diversity of artwork is a breath of fresh air; sculptures, oils, photography and textured design – everything you didn’t know you were looking for.

    tour description

    In this special private tour, you are escorted through active studios, ateliers and exhibition spaces by the highest level of curators and artists in Siem Reap.

    You will be picked-up at your hotel by an Art Curator, in tuktuk, and you will ride off to a journey of Arts where experts will enlighten you with their extensive knowledge on the current art evolution in Cambodia, as well as the inspirations behind each piece.

    Start with Theam's House & Art Gallery and listen to Maddy LIM always give such detailed descriptions of her brother's personal and artistic journey from Takeo to Paris to Siem Reap.

    Continue to the creation studio and Boutique of Haute Couture fashion designer, Eric Raisina, who has designed for Yves St. Laurent and collaborated with Christian Lacroix. Discover what has influenced his world and how he can make any fabric dance on your curves.

    Next World is the one of fine art photography by John McDermott who "found his calling in the temples and jungles of Cambodia. . . His pictures are hauntingly lit, more like paintings than photographs" as Time Magazine so well says.

    Nestled in the leafy central neighbourhood south of the Old French Quarter you will discover Siem Reap's rising arts culture precinct: Kandal ("middle") Village, home to a vibrant and eclectic new mix of cafes, galleries, artsy homeware shops and cool fashion stores, unique to Cambodia. You will zig-zag through, stop for a break and finish at artist Ly Pisith's gallery of creative jewellery designs, with an established style.
