As a show of solidarity with State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi in her peace process, artists in Yangon are working hard in creating her portraits.
“The first thing is we hail the path to peace paved by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi whom we dearly refer to as “Mother or Mum”. Moreover, as artists we as feel that the removal of her painting at the Oxford University is a matter of outright concern for us to deal with. Our heartfelt trust in our Mum is always irrevocable. People in many parts of the country are showing their solidarity with our Mum at the rallies. So we are doing this activity as our show of solidarity with our Mother Daw Aung San Suu Kyi,” said U Nay Aung Shu, treasurer of Myanmar Traditional Artists and Artisans Association (Central) the main sponsor of the activity in which about 100 artists took part in drawing the Mum’s portraits from 10 am to 4 pm at the art gallery of the association yesterday.
Artists also created the replicas of the painting the Oxford University has removed.
“State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has sacrificed her whole life in the service of her countrymen. Additionally, we honour her love and goodwill towards our country.
So we are always together with her. We support her endeavours with honour and respect. We take part in this activity to paint pictures of Mum who is always in our hearts,” said U Aung Lin, a consultant of the association.
The artists presented their artistic works on the Mum’s portraits as souvenirs to every visitor witnessing the activity at the gallery.
Artists also exchanged their works among them. Together with the professional artists, amateurs and invited guest were also present. —Zaw Gyi (Pannita)
