Khin Zaw Latt

Burmese visual artist Khin Zaw Latt was resident at Rimbun Dahan in May 2008. Following his residency, he returned home where he was awarded the first prize at the Myanmar Contemporary Art Award 2008 competition, a prestigious achievement which has greatly increased the selling price of his work in Myanmar.

Khin Zaw Latt then travelled to Laputta, in the Burmese south, an area devastated by Cyclone Nargis at the beginning of May. Armed with a donation from Rimbun Dahan, he provided the inhabitants of Laputta with aid in the form of clothes, food and help building houses, as well as books and school materials for children.
