  • U Tin Win, Burmese painter

    1. 1. U Tin Win, born 1952 in Myanmar, is a graduate of the State School of Fine Arts in Mandalay in 1970. Tin Win is highly regarded in his homeland as a ‘Master Artist’. His painting techniques and commitment to details have had a profound impact on budding artists across Myanmar and South East Asia. While he has an art portfolio comprising of both abstract and realistic compositions, his newer works focus mainly on photorealism artwork of portraits of the different hill tribes of Myanmar. Tin Win’s motivation for his latest paintings stamps from his desire to share with the world the diversity of the indigenous tribes of Myanmar whose livelihood, cultural values and dignity remain largely intact despite economic and social modernisation. The fine details and strong colours of the subjects in his paintings are hallmarks of Tin Win’s immaculate craftsmanship. Applying a stunning degree of detail and plenty of colors, he manages to turn his objects into immaculate pieces of art that seemingly come to live on canvas. Tin Win’s art work has been exhibited at numerous exhibitions both within Myanmar and internationally, and can be permanently viewed at Beikthano Art Gallery in Yangon, Myanmar.

    3. 3. In 1993, Tin Win participated in the American Contemporary Art & Gallery Management Program as an international visitor, and spent six weeks in the United States visiting museums and galleries where he met and discussed art with American artists. This trip marked a turning point for the artist. Tin Win returned home, opened Beik Thano Gallery in Yangon and began to blend in his works, "the oriental painting style" with what he saw as "the modern painting style" in American and Europe. By 2004, his paintings had been shown at more than thirty exhibitions in Myanmar, Thailand, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Australia, Japan, Korea, Isreal and the United States. Today, Tin Win often with his wife makes several trips a year to capture the beauty and grace of the over 130 ethnic tribes who live on the plains and highlands of Myanmar
