Zin yaw Aung works speak of the child-like enthusiasm with which he approaches work. Like a child exploring the world, he finds new ways to express his visuals. Strong, bold colors are his signature which lend to his inspiring outlook and approach to art.
He has great skills in the composition of feelings, contemplation and technique in his paintings. His paintings project the beauty of both human and nature, combined with his imagination onto the canvas. As one can see, he is a great realist painter. His images of Myanmar scenery, its people and cultures are outstanding. In his recent series, though, he has been trying out a style more blurry than detailed, working with wider fields of color rather than precise lines.
