Monday Murals – Kampong Jemput 1 by Yip Yew Chong

After a long hiatus on Yip Yew Chong’s murals painting (and a 2-year long hiatus for him painting a murals!) here’s his latest one painted back in August 2021 (I took the pictures right after it was painted but I already had my Monday posts with his other art pieces!). It’s located on the rear wall of “Heritage Collection” at 78 Arab street (in the back Alley)

“Kampong Jemput” means “welcoming village” in Malay, an olden day name for the area in front of the Sultan Mosque. This name is now mostly forgotten.

I painted three village children climbing ladders to a house to play. The imaginary house is like a tree house except that it perches on a platform nailed high up on the wall.

In the past, wooden ladders leading to upper storeys of shophouses were commonly seen lining Arab Street’s five-footways. All the ladders had disappeared except one at the Arab Street-North Bridge Road junction. Shopkeepers would use the pulley systems to bring goods up and down through holes in the ceiling/floor boards. (From his Instagram and Facebook post)

PS: His other 3 murals in the area (123) painted in 2015/2016

This was to be my goodbye Monday Murals Post.

Posing next to a painting of Durians, the King of Fruit (but smelly) in Asia by my favorite Singaporean Street artist Yip Yew Chong and the one I documented the most in the past 4 years.

Monday Murals Reminiscing Old Changi Days by Yip Yew Chong

I thought I would have had more wandering days to finish up my Monday Murals posts for the month of June but Covid happened… so here’s the other side of the the 37m long mural at Changi Airport Terminal 4 Basement level reminisces the old Changi days before Changi Airport was built in 1970s.

I have posted individual murals in the past few weeks but wanted to show the extend of the whole mural.

One last mural next week before what would have been the summer break from the series and also the end of documenting street arts in Singapore.

Monday Murals Reminiscing Old Changi Days by Yip Yew Chong

This 37m long mural at Changi Airport Terminal 4 Basement level reminisces the old Changi days before Changi Airport was built in 1970s. From aeroplane-watching at Changi beach, to peeking over the fence of the Royal Air Force Station; From playing ‘tarik upih’ with village kids, to shopping and dining at the variety of shophouses lining Changi Village; The mural transports you to a charming old world brimming with new aspirations.

Instead of taking a picture of the long mural on each side of the corridor I decided to take a picture of each panel and post them over a longer period of time. The murals are so full of details it seems like a waste of the artist work to not give it justice.
