Sopheap Pich

Sopheap Pich is Cambodia’s most prominent contemporary artist. Working primarily with bamboo and rattan, he creates free-flowing, biomorphic sculptures and installations that address issues of time, memory, and the body, often relating to his childhood recollections of life during the Khmer Rouge period (1975-79).

Born in Battambang, Cambodia, Sopheap Pich graduated with a BFA in Painting from the University of Massachusetts, then an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) in 1999.
