This watercolor (although black and white) is the only male of the exhibition/ series. He is purposely separated from the other art pieces.
The artist explains: “there’s always one. He is there because he thinks he’s needed, he is playing a guardian role. But the reality, the real stars are the women of the series who can stand for themselves.”
នេះជារូបគំនូរបុរសតែម្នាក់គត់នៅក្នុងការតាំងពិពរណ៍ទាំងមូល (ស ខ្មៅ) គំនូររបស់គាត់គឺដាច់ដោយលែកពីគំនួរដទៃទៀត។
សិល្បៈករបានពន្យល់ថា “តែងតែមានមួយ, គាត់នៅទីនោះព្រោះគាត់គិតថាគាត់ត្រូវការគាត់ជាអ្នកលេងហ្គីតា។តែធាតុពិតស្ត្រីក្នុងវគ្គជាតួអង្គពិសេស។
About the Artist:
Coming from the 80s and 90s punk rock scene, KOK is a musician and cartoonist trained at the Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux and Les Arts Appliqués de la Gironde.
The all-digital nature of comics no longer allowed him to sell originals, so KOK returned to painting in 2006 and started with a “comic-style”, followed by a conceptual and modern approach to portraiture influenced by female issues and women’s rights.
He has exhibited in France and internationally, most recently at the Institut Francais of Bangkok, Thailand.
