Bagyi Aung Soe honoured in 144 Pansodan

Bagyi Aung Soe blew the Burmese art world’s mind open with the freedom of his mind. An exhibition honouring his work starts in the expanded Pansodan space, near Maha Bandoola. The staircase just north of Maha Bandoola on Pansodan, second floor.



Bagyi Aung Soe’s Legacy

Bagyi Aung Soe left this life twenty years ago, but every time we come across his illustrations for poems, his magazine cartoons, or, much more rarely, one of his paintings, he springs to life in our minds.

ဗဂျီအောင်စိုး ​ကွယ်လွန်ခြင်း နှစ်၂၀ ပြည့် အမှတ်​တရ   (The legacy of Bagyi Aung Soe, on the 20th anniversary of his death) has been put online. All articles are in Burmese, but for those who love Bagyi Aung Soe but don’t read Burmese (yet — contact me for lessons) there are quite a few good reproductions of his work in black-and-white and colour. Download it from the Bagyi Aung Soe website, under Selected Texts.

See the entry on his show at Pansodan last December for more links, information, and quotations, including a link to his book.
