Samraing Chea is an artist who works predominantly with coloured and graphite pencils. With inspirations stemming from commerce, politics, urban landscapes and social environments, Chea’s work contains 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.
