Original Painting: Peaceful Resistance Myanmar

Size: 12x16

This is a painting I made with my friends in Myanmar in mind. The three finger salute, made popular by The Hunger Games, has become a symbol of resistance in Myanmar as well as Thailand against governments and dictators misusing their power.

A portion of proceeds from all sales on my site (art prints, originals, and gift shop items) are going to support Food Assistance for Families in Myanmar spearheaded by friend and former neighbor in Yangon, Eva Bruce, and also The Aid Myanmar Society. Both projects are helping ordinary Myanmar citizens cope with the current Covid crisis as well as food shortages.

Size: 12" X 16". Medium: Acrylic and marker on canvas board. (*Prints may be ordered in a variety of smaller and larger sizes)

I lived and worked in Myanmar from 2016-2019. In early 2021, Myanmar's military overthrew the nation's democratically elected leaders in a coup. When ordinary citizens peacefully protested, the military responded with brute force, killing hundreds of its own citizens including babies, children, and the elderly.

When artists around the world began making three finger salutes as a sign of support for the Myanmar people, I didn't immediately join in because I didn't want to make what everyone else was making. (I made a lot of drawings of protective Burmese owls instead.) However, I've always had a love of Myanmar longyi (a kind of sarong or skirt worn by men and women), many which reveal ethnic groups and regions within Myanmar based on their patterns and colors.

This three finger salute contains eight patterns in the background representing eight regions and ethnic groups found all around the country. (There are 135 official ethnic groups as well as the Rohingya who are a stateless minority.) Patterns represented in the background are from the Kachin, Mon, Karen, Naga, Bamar, Chin, Shan, and Arkan ethnic groups. This painting offers support, solidarity, and a hopeful wish for peace, safety, and better days ahead.

All my original paintings and drawings will be signed before shipping. I'll also make and send via email a personalized video message to you of myself signing the work and a description of the shipping process as I ensure it gets safely from my part of the world to yours (with love).

Description from Merchant:

All drawings are created on acid-free archival heavyweight paper. I use Tombow dual tip watercolor pens which are set in place with fixative. Paintings are made on triple primed canvas panels and the acrylic paints are then fixed with varnish. For best possible protection against fading over time, original artwork should be kept out of direct light. Drawings should be protected by a sheet of UV filtered glass.
