Art Exhibition: Feasting the Female Form
Artist: U Lun Gywe, Burma
Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition Feasting the Female Form with oil paintings by the Burmese artist U Lun Gywe.
U Lun Gywe who is highly regarded for his Impressionist style of paintings is one of Southeast Asia’s most respected senior painters. U Lun Gywe through his articulate and sweeping brushwork and vibrant palette is particularly regarded for his rendering of the inherent beauty of Burmese women – a subject that he often blends with Burma’s rich physical, cultural and spiritual landscape. His paintings of dancers and village women are not only reminders of Burma’s rich cultural heritage but importantly it is a reflection of a society that lives with dignity and grace despite their adverse social environment.
U Lun Gywe is 80 years old and considered the living master of Burmese painting. He has been a mentor of generations of younger artists.
Commemorating the more than fifty year artistic career of 80 year old U Lun Gywe – Thavibu Gallery is launching a limited edition coffee table book “Feasting the Female Form” in conjunction with a specially curated exhibition of recent figurative works by the artist.
