Monday Art by Murals Artist Yip Yew Chong.

Di Tanjong Katong – 2020

“This painting was specially done for a music video to "Di Tanjong Katong”, an endearing song many of us sang during our childhood days. It was also an unusual collaboration with Gendang Akustika, a Malay musical ensemble, who invited me to join them in creating this little National Day gift. Like the song lyrics, my mind pines for the old Tanjong Katong beach, its idyllic kampong and kelongs. The clear blue sea merges with the azure blu sky and under it, villagers fish, relax and play carefreely. I hear the waves lap and coconut trees rustle. I hear the tune of “Di Tanjong Katong” singing in my heart.“

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 😉)
