Biography

“Light, both natural and artificial and the resulting shadows are the things that constantly inspire my imaginations: light is my true subject.” He has regularly participated in art exhibitions in Myanmar & overseas.

A dedicated artist who had participated in over seventy shows, Kyee Myintt Saw was a faculty member of the Yangon Arts and Science University and the Institute of Economics, before his retirement. His paintings are alive with mobility and sparkles with the various hues of typical Myanmar colours under the tropical sun.

His preferred subject is the market, at night or in the blaze of early morning.  The friendliness of the Myanmar people is that makes the country great and he has deftly caught the bustling mood of the market scenes. In his famous night scene series, there is an overall sense of exuberance tempered with the hidden depths of loneliness of each person. His best talent is to catch the light and shadows from the sun or from the blazing lights of a rainy night. The colours of the morning market under the lively sun add a touch of excitement to his paintings while the cooler shadows give the feel of ease.
