SIN Many ( 1990, Battambang Province, Cambodia) lives and works in Phnom Penh. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree of Banking and Finance from the University of Battambang and is a self-taught artist experimenting with installation, painting, and screen printing. His work illustrates the aesthetic of shape embedded with his individual and collective memories, emotions, and experiences of his time. Working with lines and geometric shapes, Many hope his work can be an example to himself and other Cambodians to see art as a means of self-exploration and expression.

Sin​ Many was Sa Sa Art Projects’ 2020/21 Pisaot Artist-In-Residence. Many exhibited with Institute Français du Cambodge’s group exhibition, Personne et Espace and had his first solo exhibition, Sign, at Java Toul Kork. He is one of three founders of HOMELESS Artist Collective.
