by Em Satya (CAM)
(Opening: 6th of November 2007)
Illustrator Em Satya has worked for decades in almost every field of illustration. He has drawn for children's magazine "Mom" and "Mab",
been a cartoonist for "Rasmei Kampuchea", and a cover artist for novels. Foreigners have seen translations of his cartoons in the pages of
Cambodge Soir under the pen name 'Nono'. Cambodians know him from his popular comic adaptations of stories "Sovannasam» and "Sopaset" and more
recently, his paintings for the Buddhist Institute's series of folktales. His most recent book is the graphic novel "Bopha Battambang"
(Flower of Battambang) begun over a decade ago, and completed this year. He is currently working on painted art for children's books. (John Weeks)
