Lives and works in Ban Kokxay, Laos

Animator and new-media artist Souliya Phoumivong initially trained as a painter and was a member of the first artist-run space in Laos. His practice underwent a radical shift in 2010 following a residency in Tokyo, and his works now encompass photography, video and claymation. He established the Clay House Studio in 2012 and was subsequently approached to create the first children’s television series in Laos, My Village, which ran for several seasons. As his practice has developed, Phoumivong’s studio and set designs have become more sophisticated, but he continues to retain a hand-made quality in productions. His recent video and installation works imaginatively combine filmed footage, stop-motion animation, and models made from locally sourced clay. He also teaches and mentors younger artists in film and animation.
