Featuring the artist’s early and more recent work, the exhibition showcases his artistic development and shifting style.
Some works exhibit poster-like qualities whilst broader nontraditional landscapes bring together many of his favourite Burmese motifs: rivers, buffaloes, trees, a clear love of elephants and occasional Burmese traditional figures.
His strong sense of balance, composition and design take the eye in creative and original directions, whilst invoking his own distinctive interpretations of Burmese culture and everyday life.
The exhibition opens on Friday, Sept. 11 and runs until Sept. 16 at Pansodan Scene Gallery, 144 Pansodan Street, Rangoon.
