Artist Statement
The traditional dancers, hyper masculine wrestlers, and the water scenes that constitute daily life in his native Rakhine State have all influenced Shwe Thein. Now, living in Yangon, Shwe Thein explores the winding allies, colonial buildings and traditional temples of this bustling city.

Yet, it is his technique that truly stands out. Merging the open composition and emphasis on lighting of impressionism with semi abstraction and powerful brushwork, Shwe Thein has truly developed his own unique, wonderful style.
