Khin Myint is a Burmese artist based in the UK. She became well-known in her native country with paintings that ran counter to its visual arts traditions.
Khin was the first woman to have a nude painting hung in public in Burma, a country under strict military control. She was also one of the first to experiment with abstract art in what remains to this day a highly traditional environment.
Khin's paintings reveal a unique synthesis of Burmese ethnic art and western abstraction and colour. Her paintings both celebrate the beauties of the natural world and deplore the horrors of the political world. Her most recent work employs mixed media on an aluminium base.
