U Lu Tin (1930)

U Lu Tin was born in 1930 in Monywa, a small northwestern town of Burma. His father was a mason and U Lu Tin the only son amongst six siblings. U Lu Tin opened a gallery in Monywa in 1991 called “Vision House” where he still paints today. U Lu Tin is presently the most revered and respected watercolorist of upper Burma.

U Lu Tin was amongst the first batch of art students to graduate from the Mandalay Fine Art School where he studied from 1953 to 1956. His artistic career began as a student when he started selling his paintings to support his family. After he finished a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts, he taught art at Saint Peter High School and No. 9 Government High School in Mandalay.

In 1981, U Lu Tin retired from his teaching career and devoted himself to painting.

U Lu Tin mostly produces watercolors. The subjects most frequently used for his paintings are Upper Burma landscapes of rivers and hills, trees and plants, Buddhist monasteries and pagodas.

Over the years U Lu Tin exhibited in many one man shows in Yangon, Monywa and Mandalay. A growing number of local and international collectors possess one or more of U Lu Tin’s watercolors.
