Sopheap Pich’s works are a perfect merge of his identity and material that resonates with contemporary art language.

He is so clear about his goal and his process, working with materials around him. The forms, the material, and the circular motion all show a great connection with humans and the earth. I particularly like the minimalist, non-representational geometrical painting; he treats his painting as sculpture, the details and delicacy are fascinating. Sopheap describes making as a sense of discovery and a way to crave freedom. His attitude and how he works with the intuitive process have positively influenced my practice.
