Monday Art by Murals Artist Yip Yew Chong

Christmas Lightup – 2019

“I always loved the "winter” season in Singapore, for its festive holiday mood and cool weather due to day-long rain around Christmas time. When I was in secondary school, I attended Aikido classes in the evenings. On my way home, I would intentionally take a bus that passed through Orchard Road so as to view the light-up, even thought the route was longer. The very first light-up took place in 1984. Seeing so many fairy lights for the first time filled me with awe, even more so when it rained. Sitting by the bus window, I left it ajar, allowing the wind and rain to caress my face, and the lights to flicker past. Such sweet memories.“


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 😉)
