Monday Art by Murals Artist Yip Yew Chong.
Hari Raya Tea Party – 2020
“My flat overlooked the former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, thus the Station and its railway tracks have a special place in my heart. The Station’s backyard was once a lively place that housed many families of the Railway Company’s staff. During Hari Raya Puasa, they would hold tea parties at the old Railway Club. This digital painting depicts one of those celebrations in 1070. People dressed in their best, chit-chatted and ate delicacies, while children played near the train turntable, which was used to turn train heads around manually. In 2011, the last train left the station and the backyard fell into disuse”.
Back in March/April Yip Yew Chong had a few exhibitions across Singapore. The first one was at ArtPorters gallery with some of his mural inspired art and then 2 exhibitions back to back, one at the Substation, followed by one in the hotel Sofitel. Those pieces were slightly different than his murals but still very intrigued and detailed paintings. You could lose yourself in front of each of his canvas. I will post one each Monday (it will last until the end of the year!!! Yeah one less post to think about 😉 )
