Tin Maung Oo

Born: 1949
Hometown: Yangon

Tin Maung Oo is one of the few artists of his generation who managed to pursue a career in painting without having to work as a magazine illustrator or take on another job. He attributes it to a mixture of luck and sense of optimism.  We think it is due to grit and undeniable talent.

He started painting when he was 23 years old. Similar to many Myanmar artists of his time, he started painting in the realism style. His first introduction to modern art was through a group art exhibition by leading contemporary artists that included Paw Oo Thet, Win Pe, Khin Maung (Bank). Tin Maung Oo studied under renowned Myanmar artists Bogie, Shwe Oung Thame and Myint Hsan.

A master in the use of colours, he is known for his distinctive style of using elements of cubism to depict scenes close to his heart such as villages, boats, and Myanmar dancers.

Tin Maung Oo keeps a low profile and prefers to let his paintings speak for themselves. He has exhibited widely internationally and within Myanmar.
