Som Narath likes to spend his spare time studying art. He dreams of becoming a famous artist one day and is among many children and teenagers who regularly drop by NGO Colors of Cambodia to polish their artistic talents for free.
Wearing a white t-shirt featuring the organisation’s motto ‘Art will save the world’, the 18-year-old says: “My favourite subject is landscape painting. I love learning lights and shadow, darkness and lightness.
“I thank Colors of Cambodia for giving me the opportunity to learn and explore art for free in Siem Reap.”
