This series explores the artistry of Myat Kyawt (1966), a prominent contemporary artist from Myanmar, through his innovative works Magnificent Humour. The series analyses how Myat Kyawt adeptly navigates the complexities of globalisation, identity, political discourse, and resistance within his art, using a series of visual statements to convey his message. By examining the fusion of traditional identity with global crosscultural influences, the hybridisation of artistic styles, this series delves into how Myat Kyawt's works serve as both a form of political commentary and a means of expressing dissent while fostering dialogues.
