Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"Mirage " was created for "Playing Time and Space" , a painting exhibition by Wunna Aung, Thu Myat and Kyaw Moe Khine, aka “Bart Was Not Here”, three artists from Myanmar known for their involvement in the Yangon Street Art scene. Facing a never ending political transition and consequent disenchantments, they find solace in creating the “sidewise world” they would like to live in. In this exhibition, their art becomes a machine to travel through time and space in a playful way. In his new series Thu Myat depicts a cosmos inhabited by aliens and gods.
