Artist Dr. Lun Gywe donated an oil painting to Myanma Radio and Television (MRTV) at the MRTV meeting hall on Pyay Road in Yangon yesterday.
Dr. Lun Gywe painted a picture depicting the Myanmar song “Myittar Ingyin Ya Gone” (flower house of metta or loving-kindness), as a message of peace.
At the event, Union Minister for Information Dr. Pe Myint expressed thanks for the donation.
For his part, Dr. Lun Gywe said, “The painting was created to depict the ‘Myittar Ingyin Ya Gone’ song. I wanted to contribute through my professional skills and did it out of love and for peace in the nation.”
Also, music composer Alinkar Kyaw Swar Hinthada U Myint Ngwe said, “Artist Dr. Lun Gywe painted the picture depicting my composition, entitled, ‘Myittar Ingyin Ya Gone.’ I composed this song 52 years ago, based on an article about a deer, a tiger and an archer (hunter) living peacefully in a forest full of flowers. It is also based it on my own experiences. This song will always be useful at a time when the country is striving towards peace. I composed this song in an artistically small way to help our nation. The message is that peace will prevail when people love each other and show kindness.”
Union Minister for Information Dr. Pe Myint accepted the oil painting and, in return, presented Dr. U Lun Gywe with a certificate of honour.
Director-General of MRTV U Myint Htwe also expressed words of thanks.
Present at the meeting were Deputy Minister U Aung Hla Tun, departmental officers and officials, artist Dr. Lun Gywe’s wife, artist Daw Lun Mya Mya, and artist U Hla Tin Tun. —Myanmar News Agency
