Zun Ei Phyu


Working mostly with paper-cuts from small to large scaled installations, Zun Ei Phyu‘s art practice explores the symbiotic relationship between art and human subjectivities. The process of paper cutting is such that as the negative and positive spaces construct or deconstruct textures and layers in a period of her physical and mental bodies work harmonically. It is the status of peace Phyu makes to herself, where she can understand her in a given moment. Every step of artistic experience is a reflection of life journey she had reached. Her artworks have taken her to more than ten overseas exhibitions in Austria, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, and Indonesia including two solo exhibitions in Tokyo and Kuala Lumpur, as well as more than twenty group exhibitions in Myanmar. Additionally, Phyu has had the opportunity to attend art residency programs in Bali, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Vienna.

Phyu wants to help people to experience art as she does so that she has created a few projects and workshops to youngsters from rehabilitation centers, children from monastic education schools on different topics raising out of communities such as waste management, child labor, access to education and poverty. She likes to tell the stories through her artworks. She is interested to create and experiment new artworks by communicating and interaction with people.

Phyu’s hope is that art to be a platform to interact and connects with the people to themselves, and to each other as an emotional journey.
