Artist's description:

This painting is part 2 of my triptych "Migration" .
As in part 1, the poor migrants are still symbolized by colored tadpoles moving in a colorful swamp in the manner of spermatozoa running a competition to reach the first the promised land . In a chaos of color, the painting depicts thousands of sperm fleeing Cambodia for a false promise of good jobs in Thailand. The sperm make their way to the border through a sewage pipe, the only suggestion of the troubles that lay ahead.
This is a part of my own story when at 14 years old, I was forced by my parents to work in Thailand. This is a sad reality for many of Cambodia’s impoverished youth.
