Monday Murals – “Pure Imagination” by Sam Lo (skl0)

It was painted in May 2021 and it’s located just down the street from our place.

According to the Instagram post: “The design was inspired by the schools in the neighborhood and that the building used to be a school. I imagined the daydreams the students had looking out the windows as they watched their ideas float by, and remembered all over again how that felt to dream freely with no limits”.

This month I’m sharing murals from artist Sam Lo:

Lo was dubbed the “Sticker Lady” for their pasting of stickers utilising Singlish phrases, such as Press Until Shiok and Anyhow Paste Kena Fine, at traffic-light junctions and public spaces. In 2012, Lo was arrested for spray painting the words “My Grandfather Road” on Maxwell Road and Robinson Road. Their arrest by the police for vandalism sparked an outcry over their work, prompting debates over whether it could be seen as a work of art or vandalism. They were later charged for mischief and sentenced to 240 hours of community service in 2013.

Third day of my drawing class yesterday and we learned to see the world as a flat surface!!

Trying to tell my brain that the lines were not coming toward me or going away from me but merely an “illusion” and to see them as an angle took all my brain power. 2 hours and I was ready for a nap ;-).

Also the shading takes a blah drawing to a-not-as-blah drawing 😉

02-May-2022: D-48 before departure

I wish I could draw but I cannot.

It’s not for the lack of trying, but this is not how my creative brain wish to express itself.

I keep trying and this was the closest I got to a decent outcome.

I know that if I practiced I would get better at it, but I’d rather practice in something I enjoy more.

I don’t regret taking the course, and it did bring some knowledge that I could apply to other creative area. Education/learning is never wasted.
