A SOLO art exhibition of Chindwin Yaykyi artist Aung Maung will be held in Mandalay in mid-March with the aim of promoting public interest in transparent watercolour paints.
The event will run from 13 to 17 March at the Mandalay Hill Art Gallery, featuring 50 original artworks created by the artist after his last solo show in Mandalay last March.
This is will be the 14th solo exhibition for the Monywa-based artist, who entered the art world in 1973.
The subject matter of his work includes natural landscapes and the lifestyles of people living in Myanmar’s central dry zone, including Monywa, Mandalay and Bagan.
In cooperation with around a dozen other members of the Chindwin Yaykyi Transparent Watercolour Group, Aung Maung is known for his depictions of Buddhist temples, including Moehnyin Thanbokeday, Bawditahtaung and Phowintaung, natural landscapes and cultures and customs of rural communities.
The group produces outdoor paintings every Sunday.
