  • Visit with one of the grand old men of Myanmar Art- May, 2013

    posted on Wednesday, 29 May 2013
    Last week I went to visit Khin Maung Yin, one of Myanmar's most esteemed and beloved artists.  He was sitting on the floor, surrounded by paints and canvases, looking at some books someone had just brought him.  He was delighted by the books as they all used his painting images on their front covers, and seeing them brought back memories of those works and when he had created them.  He was full of fun and devilment, teasing Aung Myint, who had accompanied me, and telling stories about the 400 students of English who come to his small house for lessons and laughs.  Although partially paralyzed from a stroke, Khin Maung Yin is undimmed by age, still painting every day and receiving legions of visitors.  Long may it continue.
