Acrylic paintings by Artist Win Lwin Aung on display at solo show in Yangon

P1030619Yangon, 23 Feb — A solo art exhibition entitled “Panoramic Dream” by Artist Win Lwin Aung went on display at the River Ayeyawady Gallery on 35th Street here on Saturday.“All paintings are acrylics painted on canvases but they haven’t given any title yet. I want the audiences to name each painting during the exhibition period,” said the 41-year-old artist.
“Visitors can see children’s lives and dreams in his paintings.”
On display at the gallery are twelve paintings, whose prices range from US$500 in minimum to US$3,000 in maximum, the exhibitor said. Some of the proceeds from paintings sold will go to free summer painting course, he told the Global New Light of Myanmar.
Normally he spends K150,000 opening a course. Since 2013, he has been conducting free summer painting courses at Yangon’s suburb South Dagon Township, with the aim of nurturing poor children with high passion. His efforts have turned out around 50 children so far.
The artist is planning to open a training school for children and offer them free painting courses and related knowledge. He described children as the future of a country and painting as a medium that can bind hearts.
Regarding newblood artists, he said, “I am very impressed with their creations which are very expert in technical knowledge”.
Graduated from the State School of Fine Arts (Yangon) in 1995, Artist Win Lwin Aung has created almost 100 paintings with the use of all types of medium. His first solo show was conducted last year. “Panoramic Dream” is his second solo show which is scheduled from 21 to 25 February.—GNLM
