Cambodian Art

Traditional Cambodian arts and crafts include textiles, non-textile weaving, silversmithing, stone carving, lacquerware, ceramics, wat murals, and kite-making, which are given great importance. These art styles encompass the ancient traditions of Khmer people that last until today in Cambodia.

Cambodian Art is more than just a form of creative expression; it is an important part of the country’s cultural heritage and identity. It has played a significant role in shaping the country’s history, from the majestic temples of the Angkor period to the revival of traditional art forms in the post-independence era.

In more recent times, there has been a shift away from traditional styles to a more abstract, experimental approach to creating works of art.
