Cambodian artist Kakkada Chhai has a new exhibition opening in Siem Reap in February 2014

If you've read my latest book Destination Cambodia you would know about my friend, the very talented and celebrated artist Kakkada Chhai, who is one of the "characters" in the book.

Now you have a chance to meet the man himself - or at least view and buy his artwork  - if you are visiting Cambodia.

Kakkada is part of a joint exhibition called Fading Faces with Phok Sopheap at The 1961 Art Gallery and Hotel, one of Siem Reap's grooviest art venues (and a fantastic place to stay, FYI).

The exhibition opens on February the 8th at 7pm, and if you plan on being in Cambodia at that time I would encourage you to attend - it will be a fabulous event. The exhibition will continue for a number of weeks after and is open to view at any time.

You can read all about Loven Ramos, art entrepreneur and owner of The 1961 gallery and hotel here.
