He has been working with MRTV of Ministry of Information as an indoor permanent studio artist for setting designs as since 1999. He has done 4 solo exhibits and participated in more than 30 groups locally and internationally.

Watercolor on paper is his favorite medium as they make his heart more satisfied than other mediums although he creates art with other mediums. And also watercolor is the first medium he studied under Chindwinyaykyi watercolour group artists in upper Myanmar. He also did illustrations and comics for Manizota and Seinthamani religious magazines.

He had a great exposure for art since he was a kid as his grandfather is also an artist who always paints and decorates his house with his own art. His dad has been a great support to him since he was a kid and took him to Mandalay and Yangon from his native town-Monywar for art contest he wanted to compete.
