September uprising

Today it is six years since I witnessed the September uprising in Yangon in Burma. It was one of the most horrific yet inspiring moments I have experienced and I think this moment will shape and guide me as well as my art for the rest of my life. My thoughts goes out to all of those who lost their lives, to the persons that are still missing and to all the brave people that are continuing the struggle for justice, dignity and peace in Burma. The paining “We want the airwaves” I made a few years back. It is the painting that I am most proud of and it keeps reminding me of everyone I meet in Burma. Reminding me about what you are doing and that it is important.

what can I say, thank you so much for supporting my art. Your investment is truely my playground.

Also, I just witnessed the historical arrival of president Obama at Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s house. There are some incredible changes here in Myanmar for sure but we should not forget what is happening daily around us. This was my first reaction when the Eagle left the building:

“During the first outbreak of violence in Rakhine state an acquaintance to me in Myanmar posted or “liked” the facebook post “we should treat them as Palestinians” (the Rohingyas, my remark) I couldn’t think of a more awful comment in this time! Obama, now when you increasing your engagement with Myanmar and continuing supporting the Israel government, don’t forget that people in #Rakhine in #Kachin in #Gaza and many other places doesn’t have a home, a land nor security and they constantly living in fear of bullets and grenades.” (from my twitter account @duelling_banjos)
