At 11:00 tomorrow morning, Tamalar’s one-man show “Welcome to Karen” will open at Yangon’s Nawaday Tharlar Gallery. In the late 2000s, the artist visited the Shan Hills and produced a superb series of landscapes well known to all lovers of contemporary Myanmar art. In 2012, he returned to his Karen homeland, traveling through villages in the neighbourhood of Hpa-an. The paintings in the current show result from that trip. From a sneak preview earlier this week, I can say that they are again stunning. In short, this will be another great Nawaday Tharlar exhibit, running for just five days until Wednesday 17 – not to be missed!
