Monday Art by Murals Artist Yip Yew Chong.

Mid-Autumn Night – 2017

“The fifteenth night of the eight lunar month was always the most enchanting night in Chinatown. Set in 1979, this painting expresses my memories of the charming scene. While my siblings, neighbours an I played with candle-lit lanterns on the streets and in back alleys, our mothers would be at the windows, praying to the moon. The men would gather at the five-foot way, enjoying moon-cakes, pomelos, yams and ta and bit-chatting through the night.”


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 😉)
