Artist Zarni, an artist from Mandalay, will present select watercolor paintings at a solo exhibition in Yangon this weekend, according to the event’s organizer.
The exhibition entitled ‘Ultramarine Blue’ will be held from 22 to 24 December at Gallery 65, a contemporary art gallery situated on the Yawmingyi Road in Dagon Township, Yangon.
Artist Zarni said that a total of 36 watercolour paintings will be displayed at the three-day exhibition and each 15’’ x 22’’ painting will be priced at US$350. The subject matter of the paintings will include beautiful landscapes, ancient buildings, and other historic structures, especially from the Sagaing Region and the Bagan ancient cultural zone in the Mandalay Region. The artist will also include two paintings depicting Yangon’s well-known structures, including the Bogyoke Market downtown.
The exhibition will be open to the public between 10 am and 6 pm daily.
This will be Zarni’s second solo event. He held his first solo show in October 2017 and plans to hold a third solo event in February 2019 in his hometown Mandalay, where he will exhibit only paintings with an outdoor theme. The artist said he plans to hold solo exhibitions every year.
The 32-year-old artist studied at the State School of Fine Arts in Mandalay eight years ago. Since entering the art scene, Zarni has participated in several art exhibitions and his works can mostly be found at collective art shows. Artist Zarni said that he has participated in 50-60 group art shows and is planning to take part in a group exhibition next month.—Junior Lwin  (Translated by Khaing Thanda Lwin)
