Khin Zaw Latt’s paintings portray the scene of locals getting on the ferry after a long day of labour. The flow of the crowd seems like a mass of a single object, conveying sense of stress and oppression. The more he observes the crowd, the more he notices the hope and beauty worn by each individual. With highly emotive rendering of light and shadow, Khin Zaw Latt paintings conveys not just the difficult lives of his country man but also their hope.
In his Buddha paintings, Khin Zaw Latt depicts the face of Lord Buddha in his human form. He is inspired by the story of the Buddha’s life, his strive to defy human’s desire and his teachings that affect millions of lives. He combines painterly wash with stamping technique and roller, creating serene and glorious impressions from a flat canvas.
