Lao American artist spotlight: Sayon Syprasoeuth
One of the nice things about spending some time out in California this year is discovering new Lao American visual artists. Among the recent ones I've found is Sayon Syprasoeuth in Southern California. You can visit his website and his work at http://www.sayonart.com
He's working in a number of different techniques and I think he has a distinct style and set of themes that he has been working with, that tie nicely back to traditional culture but also more modern sensibilities and experimentation. For Lao American visual art to flourish in the century ahead, this is essential. I look forward to seeing more of his work in the coming decades.
