Sin Yang Pirom

Sin Yang Pirom became interested in drawing in 1972, and asked her father to let her attend drawing classes at the Royal University of Fine Arts. This part time study was stopped by the 1975 revolution.

From 1980 to 1990 Ms. Pirom worked as a Deputy Chief in Chamkarmon Commune, and her skills were recognized in an art competition for International Women’s Day in 1986.

In the 1980s Ms. Pirom began drawing comics and submitted them for approval at the Ministry of Culture. Once approved she printed and distributed her comics directly to book sellers, bypassing wholesalers.

A shrinking audience and a growing family led Ms. Pirom to stop drawing comics in 1990.  Few copies of her comics or original art can be found.  Ms. Pirom has recently completed a new graphic novel, Snae Phnum Pan.
