Peter Pa is a queer Cambodian American illustrator and artist based in Boston, MA. Peter earned his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design where he received the Kira M. Fischer Scholarship for excellence in film. He has received grants and fellowships from USAID Global Development Lab, in which he was an exhibiting artist at the 2014 Frontiers and Development forum in Washington D.C.
With the tenderness of a gardener, Peter’s work strives to create an ecologically mythical fabric in which natural landscapes are reclaimed, and immigrant identity can be reinvented. As the
youngest child of a family of Cambodian refugees, Peter believes in the transformative power of art to rise beyond ones’ violent history. His work has been screened and exhibited nationally and internationally in spaces including the Museum of Radio and Television, and Rooftop Films in NYC, Boston Cinema Census, Yale University Asian American Film Festival and Kurumaki Studio Gallery in Nara, Japan.
