(b. 1946, Myanmar)
Aung Myint is a Burmese painter and performance artist. A pioneer in experimental art, rejecting traditional approaches and confronting social and critical issues through a range of distinctive styles and media, his paintings and performance art have a broad range of unique styles.
His works includes both representational and abstract images, which inspiration was also derived from the circle and swirls of the Myanmar alphabet.
His more recent monochromatic drawings of mother and child are well known in Southeast Asia. The continuous line is derived from a one-line painting, a technique familiar in Burma used in the mural works of Bagan and carried on as a traditional method of painting in the early 20th century.
