Myanmar Artist

Myat Kyawt

Myat Kyawt was born in 1966 in Mandalay, Myanmar. He studied under the artist U Nyo Pyar , U Tin Moc and U Khin Maung Sann.

His technique of dropping acrylic onto canvas reflects a child-like innocence in approach. His energetic use of color and his depiction of people and tress further enhance this sense of fantasy. Myat Kyawt has participated in group and solo exhibitions in Myanmar and Singapore. Once of his paintings was chosen as one of the “Jurors” choices ” in the Myanmar Art Awards 2001-2002, and he was a finalist in the 2004 Myanmar Contemporary Art Awards.
