Or Yutheabegan his career in comics in 1986.The artist’s comics quickly became popular due to professional drawing skills and innovative cover design. When possible Or Yuthea prefers to write and draw original stories, and he has lost count of the number of comics he has done. This helped support his study at the University of Fine Arts, from 1986 – 1993.
When comics began to lose their popularity he turned to other forms of illustration, in particular books of song lyrics, NGO comics and illustrations, paintings and children’s books. He currently works as an architect and designer for the Ministry of Land Management and Urban Planning. Some of his nonprofit clients have included both GTZ and Cambodian Women’s Crisis Centre.
Or Yuthea was featured in the 2004 exhibition Bande Dessineé Au Cambodge (Comics of Cambodia) at Centre Culturel Français, Phnom Penh. His cover art can be seen in the present day at Psar O’Russey, Phnom Penh.
