Prom Vichet paints scenes of daily life with a quiet sensibility that is unique among today’s painters. His work is consistently made with a precise choice of colors and a soft touch that never fall into the cliché.
Prom Vichet presents his most endearing work to date: a series on Leftover. If people think of Angkor Wat and religious icons as images of Cambodian art, then this work is the furthest thing on their radar. His work is contemporary as it is a reflection of a culture, society and Cambodian painting. Choosing to paint trash is a bold gesture and the implication is wide and relevant. Many artists can gain a lot by considering Prom Vichet’s work.
