FONKi World.jpg

FONKi is a Montreal graffiti artist that was born in France from Cambodian parents that fled the Khmer Rouge regime in 1975. In 2012-2014, FONKi became the protagonist of the documentary film “The Roots Remain”, as he came back to his ancestors’ country. His public art then went through a great evolution. An evolution that reflects the one Cambodia is going through today: a blending of ancient tradition and contemporary influences, led by a crazy race towards modernity.
Through his unique “kbach” graffiti lettering and his giant portraits, FONKi makes us discover Cambodia’s history. The young artist is thus convinced that art and colors can transcend the dark memories of the past.
