Monday Art by Murals Artist Yip Yew Chong

Kallang – 2020

“The flight is about to land in a few minutes, and a breathtaking view unfurls below. Flying over a familiar huge blue cylinder, I can see the street life below -buses, trishaws and people moving about. I can see a huge stadium and the tiny airport building on the left! The rivers are winding and converge into a large bay. A village in between, of attap houses and boats with tall masts, takes me back to the nineteenth century. As a plane glides over the long bridge, I can see a stone lion below a column at one end. On the sprawling bay teems boats, ships and flying-boats? Further beyond, another huge bridge seems to be under construction, and some strange seashell-like buildings glitter afar. A timeless view I wish could last forever, but alas, we’ll be landing at Kallang Airport…”

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 😉)
