Hul Kanha (born in 1999 in Siem Reap province) lives and works in Siem Reap, Cambodia. She is currently pursuing her English language degree at university. Kanha was a former member of the artist collective “Open Studio Cambodia”. Kanha feels art is essential to her soul as a mode of self-expression and deeply connected to her daily artistic practice. Her multidisciplinary artwork mainly incorporates photography and performance art with painting, paper cutting, and stencil techniques. Thematically, her work often highlights the role of women in society, questions society’s deeply held beliefs, and celebrates the women in her life.

Kanha is the recipient of the Treeline Urban Resort Artist Grant (2020) and has been an invited speaker and art instructor by the United Nations Women i4i Conference (2020) and NOMADIX Arts Festival (2020). She has participated in group exhibitions throughout Cambodia, Galerie Lee in Paris (2020), and Artxchange Gallery in Seattle, the United States (2020).
