Muu Muu is my good friend and great artist from WanBo village, Monywa. He studied in Mandalay Art School from 1975 until 1979 and after finishing his studies he moved to Yangon to work as a magazine illustrator for “Moe Way” magazine, in which famous and independent poets and writers worked. After 3 years in Yangon, Muu Muu moved back to Pyin Oo Lwin because at that time magazine job was very censored. Back in Pyin Oo Lwin he opened a gallery called “Myth” that later changed the name to “3D” and since 1998 he works in his gallery “La Vie”
