Min Zaw employs primary colours, not complementary colours. His works are like the dreamscapes made of several layers. In the composition of his works, abstracted use of colours is found. His paintings can be said red world, blue world, green world etc. because he mainly relies on colour field. These colour plains are strengthened with creased surfaces. To see his dark blue mountain range is like to see the high mountain range of Shan State of Myanmar at night. In fact, it is more like the landscape in the imagination world or in the dream world than the one in real world. The other strange thing is the use of medium. Like the use of colours in painting, his use of coloured papers with his own style has simplicity and strength of thickness. There, in making an artwork, might be difference between painting with brushes and forming composition with coloured papers. Something important here is the freedom from medium-mania. The change of medium is more than the change of method, which can give a new change of view and aesthetic appeal, too. May-be artist Min Zaw’s change of medium leads to the change of his view on life.
