Aung Kyaw Htet Artwork Details
Aung Kyaw Htet's paintings of religious life in Burma show monks and nuns in a realistic manner, though non-essential objects are omitted from the paintings in order to draw attention to the individuals. Aung Kyaw Htet paints the faces of monks and nuns in great detail to show their humanity. This is in contradiction to most Burmese artists who usually omit facial details to focus on monks as symbols of religion rather than as human individuals. Aung Kyaw Htet's use of bright colours is attractive and draws the viewer's attention to the serenity in the paintings.
