Ashin Cintita Discusses Progress Being Made At Sitagu Buddhist Vihara (English)

Burmese master craftsmen duplicate statues from the original Pagoda in Burma to 1/3 scale. This is the finished clay die before its placed in the kiln. Then the die will be used for the rubber molds used to cast the many statues that will adorn the Pagoda at Sitagu. Hand craftsmanship at its finest. By western standards this would be a multi-million dollar project, just for the art and sculpting work involved, not including the meditation area, buildings, library, reflection pond and the pagoda. The artists came from Burma simply for the sake of accomplishing something for their faith and their people. The west could learn something about true giving from this crew of dedicated Buddhist craftsmen for it’s not all about the money.

U Win Maung over seeing crew of master craftsmen here at the Sitagu Vinhara. I was surrounded by greatness. These guys are totally awesome and an example of what Burma is capable of if they choose to do so. There is a twinkle of hope for the future I do believe…

Sitt Nyein Aye is truly a trailblazer in the art world. Top of his class with honors in Burma he also was a rebel. He earned his place in art history since he ventured where no other artists ventured before, the modern art scene. Granted, the socialist government was not to pleased. In the dark days of 1988 he moved to India. Though he would have lived most comfortably in India he chose to give his earnings to pro democracy groups around the world in support of their valiant struggle. After living in India for 20 years he recently migrated to America and destiny.

Humanity is in his blood since he is dedicating his time and skills to the Shwezigon Pagoda and Meditation Center Project. Eventually he will pursue his dream and open an art school for Burmese and non Burmese artisans who yearn to learn from a true master. And he could not have chosen a better place to establish himself in the art scene, Austin Texas.

Please note that the quality of his art work presented on this video does not do him justice. But there will be more interviews and videos in the future as this creative genius evolves in the great state of Texas. And I’ll be there to capture his achievements on film and print.

Sitt Nyein Aye (Burmese: စစ်ငြိမ်းအေး, IPA: [sɪʔ ɲéiɴ ʔé]; born 24 April 1956) is a Burmese artist.

Sitt Nyein Aye came from a small village, near Nyaung-U Township in Upper Myanmar.[1] He was born Sein Aye (စိန်အေး) to Daw Than Swe and U Tun Pe. His parents were farmers with no money for education. Monks in the village monastery provided the resources needed for him to attend high school. He secretly studied modern art but this was frowned on by his teachers, being dubbed “mad art”. He failed to achieve the top prize that would have allowed him to study abroad. Instead he lived on the streets and sold artworks to passers-by.

Sitt Nyein Aye spent two months in custody for sketching the ruins of a student union that had been blown up by Ne Win in 1962.[2] As a supporter of the pro-democracy movement in Burma, he has lived in exile in India.[3]

He changed his name to Sitt Nyein Aye, which means War and Peace, after reading the novel by Leo Tolstoy, in his twenties.[3]

Htein Lin, the Burmese painter and performance artist, studied under Sitt Nyein Aye.[4]
