Breathing Fresh Life into Cambodia’s Art Scene
A conversation with artist Tyta Buth.
At just 24 years of age, Tyta Buth has already established herself at the center of Cambodia’s arts scene. A portrait photographer who attracts hundreds of people to her exhibitions, she encapsulates the rise of a new generation of artists in a country which is rapidly moving away from a past overshadowed by war and genocide.
Buth, who trades under the brand name TytaArt, studied Global Business & Design Management at Regent’s University London and Strategic Design Management at Parsons School of Design, The New School, in New York.
With a keen eye, she captures the nature of humans in their rawest state or, as she describes it, an exposure of the soul. She spoke with Luke Hunt. Listen here.
