I was born in Yangon during the military dictatorship. Although I was interested in painting as a child, I could not afford to go to art school. After graduating from high school, I had a few opportunities to study painting. In 2009, I was fortunate to meet a local artist, Tun Tun Hlaing, and began to study painting with him. I also participated in an artist residency in Korea. I have exhibited my work widely in Myanmar and have participated in exhibits in Korea, Malaysia, France and the Netherlands. This is the first time for me to participate in ArtPrize and my first show in the US.
