Min Wae Aung

Born: 1960

Hometown: Danubyu, Myanmar

Based in: Myanmar

 

Born in Danubyu, Myanmar in 1960, Min Wae Aung studied landscape and portrait paintings at the State School of Fine Arts, Yangon, and later developed his unique style, which has been met with intense international success.

Min Wae Aung captures the very essence of Burma, its spiritual and magical dimension, creating iconic characters, which perpetuate age-old traditions. Monks and nuns in burnt-orange and maroon robes against striking gold backgrounds, with dramatic effects of light and shade, characterize his works. Faces are rarely shown, as Min Wae Aung prefers to emphasize the monks’ movement. In his eyes, their anonymity helps convey how they are “leaving humanity behind” and going to “a peaceful place, like Nirvana.“ The audience often experiences a deep feeling of serenity and inner peace when contemplating his works.

Min Wae Aung’s paintings can be found in private and corporate collections across the globe, and count more than 50 international exhibitions to date. His works are held by the Singapore Art Museum in Singapore, Standard Chartered Bank in Hong Kong, Nation Museum in Myanmar and Fukuoka Art Museum in Japan. His works are also collected by galleries and institutes in Singapore, Malaysia, Netherlands, USA and UK, and are regularly showcased at art fairs.
