Anaphyabal – Guardian, Mother, Protector looks after Phare’s campus

From Phare’s website (phareps.org) :

For the very first time, Battambang was the theatre of an international urban art festival, S’Art Urban Art Event, hosted on our campus in Battambang from the 5th to the 11th of November 2018.

Acclaimed Irish mural artist Fin DAC decided to stay a week with us and painted a monumental mural painting on the façade of our main circus hall, representing a traditional Apsara dancer.

Fin DAC, originally Finbarr Notte was born in Cork (Ireland), but lives and works in London. He started making street art in 2008. DAC is an acronym for Dragon Armoury Creative. His combination of traditional portrait techniques and stencils crosses the boundaries of conventional street art. He uses stencils to make the outlines like a painter would use the photograph as an inspiration for canvas work. After he puts on the templates, he fills in the outlines by hand, using aerosol. This method gives his murals a blissful appearance and more dramatic shading.

A huge thank you to Tribe Urban Art Gallery in Siem Reap for their support and collaboration in bringing this beautiful festival at an international level by contacting, inviting and sponsoring Fin DAC to visit in Battambang. Thanks to their initiative and support, this event and all the benefits from the printed versions of his beautiful artwork will benefit to Phare Ponleu Selpak, and support the education and scholarship of our Visual and Applied Arts students.
