Prominent artist Zayar Aye is holding his first solo show and aims to raise money for flood-affected communities in Myanmar.
A solo art exhibition by artist Zayar Aye titled ‘Scent of Myanmar’ is being held at Yangon Gallery with the aim of raising funds to flood victims. The five-day event runs until 13 October and will showcase around 60 acrylic paintings.
“This is the first-ever solo show in my 20-year career,” said the 41-year-old artist.
Zayar Aye’s exhibited works depict the beauty of Myanmar women, traditional arts and culture, and natural landscapes.
Prices of artworks range from US$700 to $8,000, with part of the proceeds going to the relief and rehabilitation of disaster victims.
“We plan to donate rehabilitation supplies to the victims in the worst-affected regions in November,” said event organiser Lynn Whut Hmone.
The Yangon Gallery is situated within the compound of People’s Park near the Planetarium Museum on Ahlone Road.
