Innocents to the fore in anti-war exhibition
War, peace and dreams are portrayed on canvas by an internationally renowned Myanmar artist during "Dreams" which is running at the Event Space, 4th floor of Central The Original Store, Charoen Krung Road, until May 21.
This is a solo exhibition by Khin Zaw Latt who shares his conceptual idea, "When there is war, no matter who loses or wins, the true losers are the people living in the warzone".
The artist wants to recount the war situations both in the past and present and express his dream of seeing true peace in the world, with no more discrimination or fighting.
On display are 19 acrylic paintings that will not let viewers forget about the victims who are affected by war and rather encourage them to be aware of the unreasonable destruction, where a huge number of people lost their families and were forced to leave their hometowns.
The artist hopes this exhibition will play a small part in leading us to have a shared dream and bring us a peaceful, harmonious world. Khin Zaw Latt started drawing at a very young age as he grew up in a family of artists, with one of his elder brother being a painter. He has had the opportunity to showcase his work in both solo and group art exhibitions in many countries around the world, including Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Nepal, America, Germany, Thailand, Canada and Belgium.
The exhibition is open for public viewing daily from 10am to 6pm, except Monday.
