Born in Bogalay in 1943, Mya Thaung graduated from the State School of Fine Art, Yangon in 1967, and has since become known for his sensitivity to the subtleties of light and color in Burma’s humid tropical environment. While the medium has traditionally lent itself to rural landscapes, the works on view focus equally on depictions of urban life, capturing everyday street scenes with equal skill. The soft-spoken and silver-haired painter is a veteran of Burma’s artistic scene, having shown his work in dozens of exhibitions both here and abroad. Mya Thaung was also the recipient of the first prize, grand prize and best in show at the Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society in New York in 1990. This week’s exhibition is the artist’s second solo show in Rangoon to date. Lokanat Gallery is located on the first floor of No. 62 Pansodan Road in Kyauktada Township, and is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm.
