What you'll do
In this workshop, we will go over basics portraiture, acrylic painting techniques, brush types as well as brush strokes for you to paint your true persona on canvas. The aim of this workshop is to get your hands dirty while having a moment of self-reflection and finally paint your self-portrait. At the end of the day, each participant will have their own unique self-expression to take home with them. No painting will be the same!
Nowhere Art Studio
Hi there, I'm Ajin, an artist from Malaysia based in Phnom Penh for the past 5 years. I've been involved in the creative industry since 2000 & has exhibited in numerous local & international venues. In 2013, I quit my job as a graphic design lecturer to pursue my dream of traveling the world & making art by learning, sharing & teaching. After 2 years of traveling by land from Kuala Lumpur to Spain, I accepted a job offer as Head of Art at an award-winning ad agency in Phnom Penh. In 2015, I co-founded NOWHERE Art Studio, the one, and only independent artist-run space in the city. Since then, I've curated exhibition, residency, talks, screening, workshop & social art projects. In 2018, I participated in Festival Tokyo, Japan representing the Phnom Penh's art scene. Currently, I also teach drawing part-time at an animation studio.
