Cash is Queen

This is my first work coming out from my new studio after a long break for summer. It is titled Cash is queen, 2013, ink on paper, 56 X 77 cm (cropped) and is one of many painting that I will exhibit at my upcoming show in Kathmandu, Nepal at Gallery Image Ark by the end of October. I don´t have the details yet but will inform you as soon as I know more. I am really excited about this show because it gives me the opportunity to share my experience and spread knowledge about todays Burma to a wider audience. It is my way of giving back to all the good friends and brave people that are daily working for a new Burma where all people have the same rights and were the word justice finally will mean something.

An open love letter to Yangon

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , — cap @ 10:16 am

Hustlers and thugs, vandals and lovers, family and friends,

I arrived in Yangon, Myanmar in mid 2007. I came with very little knowledge about the country and with an open mind just days before the September uprising. Since then, I have witnessed dreams being crushed by force, hope swept away by floods and peoples voices being ignored. I have witnessed babies being born and people past away. Together we have been happy and sad. Still it has been one of my best periods in my life because you made me an artist. It is your warmth and openness that made everything possible and there is no proper way of saying thank you. But please remember that you have been and always will be a huge part of my life. Together we have achieved a lot of positive things and this is just the end of a new beginning.

I don´t want to mention any names because I don´t want to forget anyone that have been part of this journey. But what I would like to mention is three informal institutions of which my life in Myanmar have been circulated around since my arrival. In no specific order my love and respect goes out to you;

Pansodan Gallery, the hub of knowledge, hospitality and late night discussions. I have learned so much by just being around the people and the art passing through the gallery.  Also, thank you for letting me exhibit at the gallery. The 10th of December 2011 was one of my best evenings ever in my life. From that day and onwards I haven´t hesitated once when asked what I am doing for a living. I am an artist! Thank you

Thank you Side Effect for your endless friendship, for your struggles and success. For your commitment to stay independent and instead following your hearts and dreams. I wish you all the best in future and I stick to my commitment as self proclaimed driver on your world tour when the time has come. One more thing, I truly believe that we will meet in Sweden so you better change the lyrics of the song. Maybe we can control the future after all.

Thank you Yangon Street Art (YSA crew) for your attitude and generosity. You guys have been an endless source of inspiration to me and I think that if you look at my paintings you see what I mean. Thank you for keeping me being creative and for the new styles, shapes and colors you are sharing with the city late nights in Boogie Down Yangon. Also, I just sold the “Burners not Bombs” piece meaning that drinks and food is on me next time we meet. Remember, always stick together.

I never got the opportunity to meet Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and maybe it wasn´t meant to be. Actually I am not sure what I would say to her if I got the chance. Honestly, I think I am more happy that she had the opportunity to meet up with one of my paintings (the one in the photo is titled Painfully average) because she, along with the people of this beautiful country, have been a great inspiration in my life, in my work as an artist and in our common struggle for making this world a better place.

I will always remember all of you. Until next time, loads of love

American (Obama) idol beef

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , — cap @ 12:59 pm

The beef about the Obama piece in Yangon by Night have got way to much attention in national, international media and social forums. Some arguing it was a flirt with the media due to timing of Obama´s visit, some might say it is a tribute (as the writer does) or it is just a wall painting plain and simple. Toy or writer, you judge. In my opinion the only good part in this story is the actual outcome. The execution of the second piece was way better then the first one and the result is pretty good and I become happy when I look at it.

Graffiti in Myanmar is quite a new phenomenon (Dear journalists, it is NOT a result of the country opening up; it is just a comfy shortcut for you when you write the articles) and what makes me happy these days is that we can actually talk about Myanmar graffiti and street art. And this is where concept and long tradition of beef/battle in hip-hop becomes interesting. We can back stab each other, pissing on each other’s timelines and we can go over each other’s pieces in the streets, it is all part of the game. It might look childish, and I feel sorry for anyone´s piece being painted over, but what it actually does is improving us as artists, as vandals, it triggers us to become bigger and better because by the end of the day graffiti is all about style.

You can read (in English) an interview with the writer that did the piece in Myanmar Times
