Soe Soe

Soe Soe was born in 1967 in Laputta, Myanmar. His artistic talent was evident as a young boy and his talented parents – father is a pianist and mother is an instructor of traditional dance – nurtured his gift for painting. At the age of eighteen, he made a decision to devote his life to painting and five years later he graduated from the State School of Fine arts in Yangon. His unusual techniques reflect his pioneering spirit in pursuing innovation in each piece of art.

Since 2004 he has adopted a unique way to apply paint to the canvas; with the precision of a surgeon he started to use syringes. His works capture the vibrant energy of sunlight dappling the beautiful rice fields of the Northern Shan State in Myanmar. The three-dimensional quality of his refreshing compositions captures the nature and reality of the colorful trees and rural people. His colour palette is usually composed of strong and pure colors which express the intensity of light in tropical climates.

In more recent series Soe Soe focuses on the city and paints with dimmed colors and soft hues. The windscreen of his car becomes a creative lens, which he uses to create street images blured by the monsoon rain.

Soe Soe has held several group and solo exhibitions around the world, including Yangon, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, New York, London, Paris, and Knokke. He has emerged as a significant artist, well-received by international collectors and his paintings can be found in both private and public collections, both in Myanmar and abroad.

For Soe Soe, painting is a companion that gives him eternal pleasure. Perhaps it’s this joyous sincerity that attracts the heart of his collectors.
