U LUN GYWE - Feasting The Female Form

U LUN GYWE - Feasting The Female Form

Book Launch and Art Exhibition

Book Launch: June 18 at 5 pm

Exhibition Dates: June 18 - July 16
Opening on June 18 at 5 pm
U Lun Gywe is unfortunately too old and frail to travel. Shireen Naziree will be present to sign the book and talk about
the art works.

Art Exhibition
With an artistic practice that spans more than fifty years, eighty year old U Lun Gywe is regarded as Burma's most prominent master painter and one of Southeast Asia's most important senior artists. U Lun Gywe's figurative works of Burmese women are a celebration of their inherent beauty and grace, which he renders through his unique Impressionist style of painting that is a combination of orientalist discipline and western artistic practices. His paintings of dancers and village women, rendered with a vibrant palette and sweeping brushstrokes, are filled with movement - a contrast to his quiet sketches of nudes that aptly reflect his western art training.

Book Launch
Commemorating the more than fifty year artistic career of 80 year old U Lun Gywe – Thavibu Gallery is launching a limited edition coffee table book “Feasting the Female Form” in conjunction with a specially curated exhibition of recent figurative works by the artist. The text is written by the international art historian and curator Shireen Naziree.

This is a very high quality limited edition book, printed in 500 numbered copies. It comes in a boxed edition and each book contains the Giclée art print Nude with Apple - printed on archival paper, signed by the artist U Lun Gywe, and numbered in the same edition as the book.

The book was written and produced in Malaysia and Thailand, and printed by a Singapore company on imported archival paper from Japan.
