Htein Lin (b.1966) is an artist, writer and former comic actor, based in Myanmar. He developed his artistic practice in prison (1998-2004), painting secretly on cotton prison uniforms in his series 00235. Meditating for several hours daily, Buddhism is a major inspiration for his work as are human rights, including freedom of speech and discrimination. He is a founding member of the Association for Myanmar Contemporary Art (AMCA).
Recent and ongoing series includes ‘A Show of Hands’, plaster casts of arms of former political prisoners, with their stories; and ‘Skirting the Issue’ exploring the underlying discriminatory attitudes towards women in Myanmar, ‘How do you find….?’, paintings of cities and countries using his prison technique; ‘Recycled’, abstracts begun on his release using cheap locally recycled cardboard, and now focussed on words in Burmese script that symbolize the zeitgeist; and ‘Signs of the Times’, where Myanmar’s economic modernization is captured through discarded acrylic cuttings used for signboards.
