One of the main reasons why I went to Phnom Penh is because I wanted to support the debut exhibit of my good friend Mikee Santiago. The 20+ works of watercolor on paper, collectively named DIVA, is a tedious hard work of more than 4 years before its launch in The Chinese House.
My favorite pieces:
I was drawn to this one because I like the shape of the face and color of it. It's actually more green in real life but the yellow lighting seems to turn it more blue.
I also like this red diva because the eyes is flirty and fun.
This piece looks stunning with a hint of gold. It got sold when I was there.
Mikee's friends all came to support him. There were performances and everyone just enjoyed the scene.
Some of the fab, fashion people during the opening:
Franco, Bettyinme, ITSELF. Check out his delightful blog about his life as a creative director of a fashion magazine.
Karen, Miss Bubble Bath, ITSELF, wearing a white DP top.
My future client, Ascon, looking so chic and towering in her vertiginous platform heels.
Maan and her boyfriend (I'm so sowee I forgot his name)
One of the chicest Khmer lady I know, Sophy, rockin a Gucci-esque electric blue look. She's the editor-in-chief of Cambodia's number one fashion magazine, F.
Rachel of Keok Jay, Michael, who's just back from his South African vacation and Sophea, who I can't wait to have an exhibit of his photographs.
Noh, who dare I say is Cambodia's most eligible bachelor?
Congratulations Mikee for a job well done! Can't wait for your SR exhibit at Poetry ;)
