    U Lun Gywe's aesthetic sensibilities combine French Impressionism, Oriental roots and his own Burmese heritage. He studied painting under U Chit Maung, U Thet Win, U Ngwe Gaing, U San Win and U Thein Han and continued his education at the Art Institute of the Specialist Teachers' Training Institute in Rangoon. He subsequently spent a year-long residency in Beijing and graduated with distinction in Oriental Art from the Institute of Fine Art, Beijing, in 1964. He also spent a year learning about art restoration in Potsdam, Germany. After serving as an art educator for almost thirty years, he started his career as a full-time artist in 1979 and established the Artist Life Art Gallery in Rangoon in 1999. With extensive exhibition records in Myanmar and abroad, his works are in the collections of the National Museum of Myanmar and the National Art Gallery of Malaysia. He has been the mentor for generations of younger artists in Myanmar and is one of the country's most respected artists.
