Phin Sophorn, Artist, Battambang

P1110992 (Large)Phin, wife of Mao Soviet, studied at the same school Phare Ponleu Selpak. She graduated in 2011 and since then she specializes in paintings. Her art focusses on women issues.

“I want to express the lives of women. In Cambodia they face many problems. They are busy with house work and family caring, but at the same time they are afraid to express themselves. Since they study normally lesser than men they don’t feel equal. I like to give women a voice by my art. And I like to remind women of their culture and where they come from. They should not forget about it. The orientation towards Western values is nowadays very strong in our society.”
