Yangon Gallery will host a solo exhibition of artist Soe Soe in April, to mark the 30th anniversary of the internationally successful painter’s debut, organizer Lynn Whut Hmone said Saturday.

The artist said,“Apart from one painting, all paintings on display at the gallery will be on sale, but no price has been set for my handiworks yet.”
The artist said he developedhis technique of using layers of acrylic paint to create landscapes with a three-dimensionalappearance in 2004.
After entering the art world in 1985, Soe Soe travelled with his works, exhibiting in countries including Singapore, Malaysia, Belgium, the United States and England. Hesaid Myanmar has skilful artists, but many lack the creative vision and ambition of their international counterparts.
The gallery is located near Planetarium Museum on Alhone Road in Yangon.
