Originally from east of France, Chifumi has been residing in Cambodia for the past 3 years. The name 'Chifumi' is inspired from the game "rock paper scissors", as a vanishing point crossing symbolism, joke and syncretism. Chifumi integrates the huge and deep cultural background from this country in his work. Using some khmer patterns extracted from Angkor Wat temples, holly pagodas in Phnom Penh or even silk scarf found in a lost labyrinth of a local market. His work can be found anywhere from abandoned houses not so far from the jungle, to chic restaurants of the busy capital.
