Two remarkable artists, Nak Noy and Prom Ponlue, are kicking off the exhibition with their paintings displayed in the hotel’s exquisitely appointed Kravan Room for a period of one week, before being moved to other public areas of the hotel.

 

“Siem Reap has long been Cambodia’s cultural heart. It is full of historical importance and home to some of humanity’s most profound achievements. Artistic styles born here have withstood the test of centuries, while inspiring countless artists from around the world,” said General Manager Joseph Colina.

 

“What better place to showcase the next generation of artists who hail from this special city? Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor is proud to work with Tribe Art Gallery as we introduce our guests to some of Cambodia’s most outstanding contemporary artists and their work,” he added.

Earlier this year, the hotel unveiled a series of exclusive ‘Curated Journeys’ offering guests new ways to experience Siem Reap’s rich culture and history, along with an extraordinary on-site ‘Resort Programme’ that showcases heritage and traditions in the hotel. The local artists participating in the exhibition will personally guide art tours at the hotel on special occasions. ‘The Art Affair’ will be part of the Raffles Resort Programme.
