Having painted through an era of dictatorship to more recent, reformist times, Nay Aung Shu and Aung Thic portray their everyday environment in vivid detail. Artistic talent runs in the blood, Their father, Khayay Myint Than, is also a renowned artist.

Nay Aung Shu’s acrylic works  evoke the vibrant colors so often associated with Burma; warm, rich reds, yellows and greens dominate a wide mix of styles and approaches to his favored subject matter. Many works have the feel of a street photographer’s perspective as expressed on canvas: footpath markets, monks and everyday scenes at times depicted from unusual and surprising angles. Both rural and city landscapes sit alongside distinctive ethnic portraits with occasional forays into more abstract design

Aung Thic’s works delve into pointalistic endeavors with a very deft touch. His works seem to move with the eyes.
