Tyta Buth: Breathing Fresh Life into Cambodia’s Art Scene

(IndochinaKings.org) At just 24 years of age, Tyta Buth has already established herself at the center of Cambodia’s arts scene. A portrait photographer who attracts hundreds of people to her exhibitions, she encapsulates the rise of a new generation of artists in a country which is rapidly moving away from a past overshadowed by war and genocide.

Tyta Buth, who works under the name Tytaart, earned degrees in Global Business and Design Management at Regent’s University London and studied Strategic Design Management at Parsons School of Design in New York.

With a keen eye, she captures the nature of humans in their rawest state or, as she describes it, an exposure of the soul.

Tyta says she loves that this work has enabled her to express her creativity and the ability to translate her abstract thoughts into something concrete and it can be something that brings happiness and joy to people whom she has taken photos for.

Tyta has now done four art exhibitions and she says her two favourites have been Russian Roulife and Organic Senses because she was able to convey a message through very simple items like eggs, mushrooms and mango flowers.

Russian Roulife is from the Eternal Exhibition at Sra’ Art and it has a striking portrait of an old albino woman – titled Yey Sor – whom Tyta encountered begging in the market in Kampot’s Kampong Trach district. Though the old woman is a total stranger, Tyta says she feels a strong connection between them. The old woman agreed to have her photograph taken and Tyta decided to add some eggs and a costume. The eggs symbolised birth or the beginning of life and her headdress and clothing are a tribute to Buddhism.

Tyta says she plans on continuing to show her work at art exhibitions and that she’s available to take on new clients if any businesses or individuals are interested in hiring a young photographer with technical ability and creativity.
