With Burma largely cut off from the west during the last 50 years, the local art scene became the “Galapagos Island” of the art world, evolving in isolation and in its own directions. Now, with the improving political environment, art lovers are once again being captivated by the remarkable artistic talent that exists in this fascinating county.
The East Gallery, in association with First Canadian Place Gallery, is pleased to present a group exhibition featuring 6 leading, internationally-established painters who are working in Burma today. The show will include Yan Naing Tun’s politically-themed monochromatic city-scenes; the vibrant, dramatic impasto landscapes of Ngwe Aung; contemporary Buddha portraits by award-winning painter Khin Zaw Latt; S. Moe Z.’s iconic black and red monk paintings; Nann Nann’s Buddhist-inspired symbolic and conceptual gold-leaf and acrylic works and Than Kyaw Htay’s sweeping, rich and colourful Shan state-inspired landscapes.
