Richie Nath is painting Maya and the Burning Village, a piece about the Burmese who have to flee repression, war and genocide

Richie Nath is 27-year-old painter who fled Myanmar after the 2021 military coup. He is now a refugee in Paris where he continues to paint artworks criticizing the Burmese military junta's brutal repression of dissent. Rights groups and investigative media have documented Myanmar's systematic killing, enforced disappearance, torture, rape and other sexual violence against protesters since the coup and the country's continued ethnic cleansing of Rohingyas since 2012.
