After the fall of the Khmer Rouge in 1979, Mr. Pogna was born in Battambang, a small province in northwestern Cambodia. During this time, life in Cambodia was an immense struggle. The Khmer Rouge had previously abolished all forms of education by burning books and executing teachers and people of intellect. With no access to education as a young boy, Mr. Pogna turned to art during his free time. What was once a hobby later became his daily passion when he was accepted into Phomin Fine Arts University when he was 17. After his 4 years of University, he decided to move to Siem Reap, Angkor in the year 2000. Here he started his own art gallery and has been painting and mentoring students ever since.
