Today I finished the 2nd piece in the series “Distance of War” for my upcoming exhibition. The idea to include helicopters into the drone series came after reading the news about Russia sending a new shipment of MI-24 attack helicopters to Syria a few months ago. I have not followed up on that shipment. I just hope they never arrived because this kind of airmail is killing dreams.
It has been a great start of the new year. Two exhibitions already booked for the first half of the year and today I finished my first piece for 2013. This one will be part of a bigger project I am working on which I call “Distance of War”. First one out is the U.S Airmail, 5 Cent, made in ink on paper. As for now it only needs some touch-ups and then it is ready for launch. I will only give you a teaser since it will be part of the upcoming exhibition. Anyway, enjoy and let me know what you think.
I am very happy to announce that my first exhibition on Swedish territory has been confirmed for the 1st of June. Details will come at a later stage. Meanwhile some snapshots of the first piece I am working on. This is the second over sized stamp in the series called “Distance of war”. Of course it (among many more) will be part of the exhibition and it will be accompanied with a wall painting. Now back to the lab.
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 w...Read more
I recently found out that two pieces of stamp work have been sold at Pansodan Gallery in Yangon, Myanmar and I just want to take the opportunity to say thank you. I have just arrived back in Sweden after spending more then five years in Myanmar/Burma as an artist and the people behind Pansodan Gallery was some of my first friends upon my arrival. Since the start they have been very supportive of my work and very good friends, so to Ko Aung Aung and Nancy, thanks you for everything we h...Read more

My good friend, artist and photographer Ko Thu Rein asked me some time ago if he could take my picture for a project he was working on and I agreed. For a long time I was curious about the result and now I finally got it. From the photo he later made a mixed media presentation which was sold in one of the exhibitions he was part of. I am very happy for you (that you manage to sell a picture with me on it) and I am really impressed with your work, thank you for letting me be part of it.
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 ...Read more
