Veteran artist Win Pe’s solo watercolour art exhibitionis on view until this Sunday at River Ayeyarwaddy Gallery.
“This is my second solo exhibition since I came back to Myanmar. On view are over 50 watercolour paintings, all colourful ones that will give pleasant feelings [to the visitors]. I’ve also put together a book featuring paintings from the exhibition and others not included in the exhibit,” said Win Pe.
The book was launched during the exhibition’s opening ceremony on April 1 in which the artist was on hand to sign his autograph.
Apart from being an artist, Win Pe is also a film-maker and a writer. In 1994, he attended an International Writing Programme held by Iowa University in the United States and was unable to return home until 2013. He staged a joint art exhibition with thetapestry artist Sein Myint in June 2013, followed by a solo art exhibition at the Beikthano Art Gallery in March 2014 and a joint exhibition with the late artists, Paw Oo Thet and Khin Maung Yin.
