- Kwan (solo artist)
Paint, graffiti, sculpture, r&b and pop-punk – Kwan’s experimental approach to life knows no bounds.
Moving his art from the streets, in 2017, Kwan started working with Sa Sa Art Projects, the first contemporary art space in Cambodia.
Along with fashion designers and gallery owners, he started his own collective called HOMELESS, and his works have been exhibited all over Cambodia and overseas, including Tokyo, Paris and Bangkok.
Drawn to music, he started singing and rapping, releasing several songs starting in 2019. His unique style of music saw offers from multiple local record companies, but Kwan chose to stay independent and do things his own way – which led to him releasing the single “Miss” which has passed 11 million views since releasing few months ago.
– Kwan is an artist in every sense of the word. Your favorite artist’s favorite artist.
Right now he’s finalizing his first full-length alum, doing endless shows and managing slaphouse – Cambodia’s scariest and only alternative music label.
In addition to the art and music, Kwan has also created a successful film career – with acting roles in both “The Prey” and “Karmalink.” Kwan works behind the camera as well as an art director with Turren, a local film production company.
