Myoe Win Aung poignantly captures the spirit of a nostalgic Burma in its bittersweet moments. His idyllic watercolor paintings have an underlying wistfulness that pines for the tranquility of yesteryears. The saffron robes of the monks often stand out in contrast with the muted background of an ordinary, familiar setting. Through his observation of everyday spaces, Myoe Win Aung’s works affectionately capture illuminating refractions of light and dancing shadows that evokes a sense of deep melancholy. The diminutive figures of the monks are often dwarfed by the monuments around them, monuments that have stood the test of time and history.
