Vann Nath's exhibition paintings # ll

Above: Prisoners are herded into a truck not knowing their fate or destination. They were on their way to Phnom Penh and certain death.
Above: A group of prisoners are escorted into Tuol Sleng under cover of drakness, tied around the neck and blindfolded. Vann Nath painted this in 1997.

Here are two more of Vann Nath's paintings from his exhibition at the Bophana Center in Phnom Penh. For more blog postings on Vann Nath, click here.

Horror paintings!! Vann Nath is bringing real views of the brutal regime up via his paintings. They are mostly new I've never seen(at the S21).
