Presented at TEDxPhnomPenh 9 June 2012
Loven Ramos is a visual poet who had a rocky start with art. After being refused by his folks to study Fine Arts for practical purposes, he packed his bags after college and moved to Manila. He became an accidental ART-repreneur when he moved to Cambodia from the Philippines in 2005 where he began his journey as a graphic designer. He opened his first galleries, Poetry and ArtDeli in 2010; these were followed by ’1961′, Art Explo and ARTillery. Today, his projects combine art, creative writing, food, residence and performance space and his work navigates the thoughtful intersection between creativity and commerce.
