Kaung Paing

Kaung Paing is one of Myanmar’s most acclaimed contemporary artists. Inspired by the simplicity of the life of the Buddhist monks seen everywhere in Myanmar society, he focuses on their few possessions–their fans, bowls, and umbrellas–highlighting these simple, every day objects in order to reveal their intrinsic beauty and to show how they provide color and contrast to the monks’ somewhat monochromatic existence.
