Java Café & Gallery – 56 Sihanouk Blvd, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Java Arts’ new exhibition ‘QuickDraw’ is exactly that: a collection of short comic art vignettes by ‘Jinja’ (AKA John Weeks) in English and Khmer. You’ll see observations on daily life as well as musings on larger issues of living in the Kingdom, garnered over a period of 10 years.  Copies of a 30 page color comic (also bilingual) will be available for sale and signing by the author. The opening is Wednesday the 18th, 6:30 pm.

In addition to the exhibition, an artist talk on Cambodian comics history (’50 Years of Cambodian Comics’) will take place on the 24th (in English) with emcee John Berkavitch. All are welcome to learn about this little known chapter of Cambodian art history.
