Htein Lin is a Burmese artist who works in a variety of mediums, primarily in painting, performance, and video. He spent almost seven years as a political prisoner in a Burmese prison (1998-2004). While in prison, he developed his artistic practice, using items available to him to make paintings and monoprints on his cotton prison uniform. Lin will speak about his experience of being an artist in the constrained political environment in Burma.
