Monday Art by Murals Artist Yip Yew Chong.
Trengganu Street Market – 2020
“I have fond memories of growing up in Chinatown in the 1970s. I liked to ram the streets, soaking in the chaotic sights, smells and sounds. Trenggany Street was the busiest street as it cut through Sago Street, Smith Street, Temple Street and Pagoda Street. It hosted a morning wet market, an afternoon food market, and a night market for sundries, food and snacks. At the corner of Smith Street, there was a stall that I feared walking past most. It butchered and sold exotic wildlife like snakes, iguanas, turtles, anteaters, and more. thinking back, these memories were so vivid, it feels like they just happened yesterday. This painting allows me to wander those streets again!”
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 😉)
