An art exhibition titled “Beauties of East and West” opens this week at Gallery 65 in Yangon with the aim of revealing the cultures and traditions of both Eastern and Western countries, artist Than Soe said.
The show will run from 7 to 10 May, featuring 45 acrylic and oil paintings created by artists Ye Min (New York) and Than Soe. The paintings, ranging in size from 1.5’x2’ to 4’x3’, will be on sale.
“Some of the proceeds from the paintings sold will go to orphans who are taking shelter at a monastery in Yangon,” Than Soe told The Global New Light of Myanmar in an interview on Sunday.
“I created ten domestic culture-based paintings for this exhibition, whose prices range from US$400  up to US$2,000, but no prices have been set for Ye Min’s handiwork yet,” he said.
The gallery is located at No. 65 on Yaw Mingyi Street in Dagon Township in Yangon.Ye Min has been active in the art world since 1980. He left Myanmar in 1988 to work as a screen printing artist and graphic artist in the girls’ clothing industry in New York. “Beauties of East and West” will be his first exhibition to support orphans with his friend.
Than Soe who also entered the art world in 1980, has a plan to showcase his handiwork at a group exhibition in late May in Yangon. He is also planning to participate in a watercolour art exhibition in Mandalay, the second largest city of the country, in June.
