Courtyard by Marriott Phnom Penh and TRIBE Art Gallery Unite for Exclusive Art Exhibition “Elements of the Lotus” by Ponlue Prom

PHNOM PENH, January 29th, 2024 – Courtyard by Marriott Phnom Penh, in special collaboration with TRIBE Art Gallery, was proud to host an exclusive art exhibition by esteemed artist Ponlue Prom, titled “Elements of the Lotus.” The event offered a unique opportunity for guests to witness the creation of four stunning pieces representing earth, water, air, and fire. The exhibition took place on January 25th, 2024, in conjunction with the hotel’s 5th-year anniversary.

The evening was attended by various art enthusiasts, distinguished guests from embassies, the royal family, and corporate partners, all coming together to celebrate the intersection of art, culture, and hospitality.

The highlight of the evening was the live painting of the water element, accompanied by a captivating fire dance representing the fire element. Ponlue Prom captured the essence of water while being accompanied by a male model dressed as a mermaid, adding a mesmerizing touch to the event.

Sarah Moya, General Manager of Courtyard by Marriott Phnom Penh, expressed her excitement about the collaboration and the success of the event, saying, “As we celebrate our 5th year anniversary, we are honored to host the ‘Elements of the Lotus’ exhibition by a renowned Cambodian Artist, Ponlue Prom, in partnership with TRIBE Art Gallery. This remarkable event not only marks a significant milestone for our hotel but also underscores our commitment to fostering creativity and cultural experiences for our guests and the community at large.”

Nat Di Maggio, the curator at TRIBE Phnom Penh, shared his thoughts on the exhibition, stating, “Ponlue’s profound connection to the lotus and its symbolic significance is masterfully expressed through his art, echoing the timeless elegance of Claude Monet’s water lily period. We are delighted to collaborate with Courtyard by Marriott Phnom Penh in bringing Ponlue’s evocative works to a wider audience, fostering an immersive and enriching art experience for all”.

Ponlue’s deep-rooted fascination with the lotus and its transformative influence, mirroring the artist’s personal journey from childhood to professional acclaim, enchanted and inspired the visitors, fostering a profound connection with nature and the human spirit. The “Elements of the Lotus” exhibition by Ponlue Prom has not only showcased the artist’s exceptional talent but has also brought together the community in a celebration of art, culture, and creativity. The event served as a platform for meaningful cultural exchange and artistic expression, reinforcing the importance of supporting the arts and fostering creative collaborations.

This culturally immersive exhibition will be available for public viewing at the Courtyard by Marriott Phnom Penh until February 23rd, offering art enthusiasts and guests alike the opportunity to explore the profound symbolism and artistic interpretation of the lotus within a modern context.
