"Burmese Days: Aung Kyaw Htet and Myint Swe"
2002-11-15 until 2002-12-08
Thavibu Gallery
Bangkok, , TH Thailand

Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition "Burmese Days" - oil paintings by the two Burmese artists Aung Kyaw Htet and Myint Swe, on 16 November - 8 December, 2002. Burma is still very much an isolated country and things have not changed much since George Orwell wrote the book: Burmese Days. This isolation is reflected in its arts which mostly feature traditional Buddhist subjects.

Aung Kyaw Htet was born in 1965 in Myaungmya and studied at the State School of Fine Arts in Rangoon. He is a devout Buddhist and grew up in a small village -- two factors which have a strong influence on his art. His paintings of religious life in Burma usually show monks and nuns in a realistic manner, though non-essential objects are often omitted from the paintings in order to focus on the religious aspects. He has participated in several exhibitions in Burma and also in Thailand.

Myint Swe was born in 1956 in the Rakhine State in the Western part of Burma. He studied at the State School of Fine Arts in Rangoon from 1975 to 1977 and graduated from Rangoon University in 1981. Myint Swe is a versatile artist and his way of expression is sometimes realistic, other times semi-abstract or totally abstract. He has participated in more than forty art exhibitions, including in Thailand and Singapore, and is the leader of the Vision Art Group.
