Sitt Nyein Aye, renowned artist and philanthropist tells it like he sees it and shares the day with Burma’s unsung heroes of democracy. A few of his latest sketches follow the discussion.
It is in his native language but still interesting and enjoyable as he shows his art work. He introduces the Heroes from Burma and another well known Burma Artist, that are all there with him. A wonderful Gift!

Sitt gave me a private showing of his fantastic art work and as usual, I was captivated by his artistic prowess and his rich blend of ancient Indian and contemporary styles he is noted for. After all, he was a pioneer and a trail blazer in the art scene of South Asia and his works grace private collections and galleries around the world. He is also a champion of Burma’s struggle for democracy in his own right and has donated literally millions of dollars in art to Burmese pro democracy organizations around the world. If you know Sitt then you already know that a visit with this iconic figure is always an adventure, on many levels I might add. more »
