The runaway boy Phyoe Kyi from southern-Shan State is one of the most prominent contemporary artists from their colleague in Taunggyi. Many of his works are focused on the relation, friendship and conflict between his mother and himself. According to his motto “Just only mother and son”, they have had just minimun human communication. But unfortunately, they are often fighting for their aims. “I want to understand her. Also, I wish so much to get to understanding from her” he said.
