Min Zaw was born 1972, earned his art degree from Yangon, State School of Fine Art with the thesis on the art of Bagyi Aung Soe. Min Zaw works have a peculiar style. His earlier landscape and portraiture works sit on the realm of Abstract Expressionism juxtaposed with a hint of Minimalism. His works are the metaphor of many ideas and styles; the use of paper collage and acrylic on canvas to create the thickness and layers, he touches on the relation between painting and sculpture to convey the rigidity of a sculpture, the landscapes grandness, the poetic colour fields of Suprematism, the graceful geometric of Constructivism, or simply an avant-garde Abstractionism. Since the 1990s, he has had many exhibitions in Yangon, from the early days in the iconic Lokanat Gallery to the River Gallery. His first exhibition in Singapore, in 2000, titled “Through Myanmar Eyes” was in Art Seasons Gallery. Since then, Min Zaw has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Canada, Hong Kong, Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, and the USA. His works are in the collection of the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum and Singapore Art Museum, with numerous private collections worldwide.
