Samraing Chea

Samraing Chea is an emerging artist who works predominantly with pencil on paper. His inspirations stem from commerce, politics, pop culture, urban landscapes and social environments, containing both humorous and startling social commentary. Alluding to both historical and present-day references, Chea’s art practice demonstrates an uncanny ability to extract the irony and idiosyncrasies of his subject matter. Samraing Chea (born 1995) has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 2011. He had his first solo exhibition in 2018 at Reading Room, Melbourne and has been included several group exhibitions at Spring 1883, Sydney; The Establishment, Sydney; Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts, Melbourne; and Melbourne Art Fair, Melbourne.
