Pinky Htut Aung

Pinky Htut Aung is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist from Myanmar, who began her career as a musician in 2013.

Growing up in a family of musicians, music has been a central part of her life, though Aung first explored her practice as a visual artist. Her first group exhibition in 2018; »Clouds are Thoughts,« encouraged her to dive deeper into (digital) art in a more transdisciplinary way, including fusing sonics and music with her visual work. She subsequently managed an experimental noise music community called Noise in Yangon, and was an active member of the band Bouhinga, until relocating to Paris in 2022.

In 2022, Aung took part in the project and digital album Common Tonalities, which assembled a group of Southeast Asian musicians and diaspora to explore electronic music production with regional tuning systems under the guidance of Khyam Allami. She also actively composes music for films and documentaries and continues to work within the visual arts.
