Win Tint

Artist Story

Born in Pyinmana, Myanmar in 1966, Win Tint is a highly respected art teacher in Myanmar. His works are in the collection of Myanmar’s National Museum. As disciple of renowned Myanmar Impressionist artists – U Lun Gywe, Win Tint feels that while he can teach the techniques of painting to his students, he cannot impart the sense of feeling of art. At first glance, the patterns of lines, brushworks, figures, space and forms, evoke impressionist artworks that are realistic but at the same time dreamlike in emotion. In these ‘vast’ spaces, the clarity and blurriness, the light and shade, of dissolving colours create a serene beauty that is in contrast with the usually crowded Shwedagon Temple from which the paintings derive its inspiration.
 
Win Tint recounts a time when a friend after viewing his collection of works, suggested that he paints something other than monasteries and pagodas. He calmly replied to his friend “You still haven’t seen what I paint.”
