Maung Win Cho
Maung Win ChoMyanmar
Maung Win Cho was born in 1963 in Mudon, Mon State, Maung Win Cho and studied under the art master and his father, U Lun Gywe. Equally talented but persistent in setting out on his own path, Maung Win Cho, explores contemporary art. After many years of challenge and struggle, his distinct painting style has evolved. His bold lining, vivid colours and sometimes transparent mosaic-like art, has attracted a global audience.
He loves to paint everyday scenes like market places, scenes with bullock carts, flowers, and Myanmar villages featuring water and small streams. Through the eyes of the artist though, these banal scenes take on a powerful transformation. They are cheerful, tranquil and yet thought provoking.
He has participated in over 60 group shows in the country and abroad.
“Maung Win Cho’s paintings vary between two different styles: rich deep hues that glow from the canvas or romantically nostalgic renderings of Myanmar scenes”
