Rena Chheang is a Cambodian painter and photographer at Big Eyes Creative.
She started Big Eyes Creative in 2012 with the hopes of capturing more than just images. She intentionally captures moments to reflect the memories and personalities – a mother’s soft smile, a gentle embrace of a father and his children – of her subjects and creates paintings that speak from her heart. Inspired by love, romance and family structure, these themes echo in her artwork and attitude towards her work.
Her first painting exhibition was in 2014 and ever since then she has held six solo exhibitions and two group exhibitions. She has appeared on the Phnom Penh Post, the Cambodian Daily, Khmer Times, AsiaLife Cambodia May 2018 issue, Forward Magazine June 2018 issue, Sovran Magazine July 2018 issue and Cambodge Magazine December 2018 issue.
She has recently started doing prints of her artwork. High quality prints on photo paper, on canvas, and on wood as well as tote bags, postcards and greeting cards are now available. Black frames and brown glass on glass frames can also be included. Her prints can be purchased at her small shop in Futures Factory and at different venues such as Khema Laposte and Ginger & Grace.
Thank you so much for visiting her site!
