Tribe’s mission statement says exactly what it actually does. No B.S. here, they are the real thing.:
Nat Di Maggio & Terry McIlkenny, the owners/managers both share a love and passion for Urban / Street and Contemporary Art. Originally from London UK where they have been heavily immersed in the Street Art scene as Gallery & Exhibition Curators and collectors. The Gallery’s purpose and mission is to primarily nurture and support local Khmer talent, established and emerging. Inviting international Artist to showcase their work, share their experiences and skills, tell their stories enabling Khmer Artists to realize their global artistic possibilities.
Tribe supports the Cambodian Art scene with its money, energy, skills, connections, and fundraisers. They generously advise, counsel, and assist anyone that comes their direction, including me. Here is ANAPYABAL by finbarr dac raising funds for Phare Ponleu Selpak . 100% of the profits went to create art scholarships and the prints sold out in record time. Each print sold will fund 3 months training for each student.
Yes…I have Anapyabal on my wall, too. And yes, my esteem for what Nat and Terry are doing for the art scene in Cambodia is as high as the moon.
