Min Wae Aung was born in Danubyu, Myanmar (Burma), 1960. He studied traditional landscape and portrait painting at the State School of Fine Arts in Yangon. His work has met with great success since the mid 90's - he has gained international esteem as Myanmar's leading exponent of the Burmese contemporary art form. A success story confirmed by each exhibition in which he participates.
The composition of his works often represent Buddhist monks or nuns painted on elaborate and striking golden backgrounds. Faces are rarely shown, symbolizing the Buddhist ideal of renouncement to the world, resulting in a deep feeling of serenity and inner peace.
