My great pal, the accliamed painter and muralist Chhai Kakkada, has just opened a brand new exhibition called Embody.
It is a daring and sensual collection of male nudes, celebrating the strength, grace and diversity of the Khmer male form. In a conservative society like Cambodia's, it is also incredibly daring - there's even a secret room!

So if you are in Siem Reap in the next couple of weeks (the exhibition runs until the end of September), please do drop by Loven Ramos' fabulous hotel/gallery The 1961 - one of the grooviest places in Cambodia.
