Aung Khaing’s Nats on Canvas

A new exhibition of U Aung Khaing’s work, စုတ်ချက်ရောင်စုံပေါ်က မြန်မာနတ်များ (Myanmar title: Myanmar nats on brushstrokes of colour) draws on the legends of the spirits of Ko Gyi Kyaw by Aung Khaingthe Irrawaddy plains, called nats in Burmese. U Aung Khaing’s allusive style suits the subject. The paintings of the 37 nats draw on the temple wall-painting style of centuries ago, with the dark outlines of their features sometimes nearly getting lost in the free washes of the backgrounds.
