Join us for a walk around the beautiful, historic & now super cool area of Blair Rd, these days home to many art galleries & artists.
Our tour will take us on a walk to see some of the wonderfully nostalgic works of famous street artist Yip Yew Chong (Singapore's equivalent of Banksy?!) - see an example above. The unassuming YC is probably Singapore's most famous wall mural artist today, and in his own words "I made my first stroke of paint on a perimeter wall of an old house at Everton Road. It was a blessed stroke which opened up a whole new world of experiences and a full year of happiness." Today you can find YC's nostalgic wall murals all over Singapore - from Kampong Glam to Chinatown to his latest at the National Museum. Come along with us to visit this very first wall mural of his at Everton Road and hear from the artist himself about his journey and his works.
We'll then explore various other hidden treasures in the area, ending with a visit to an international art gallery where we'll be swept into the amazing art works of SZTO and Ren Zi, two of today's foremost mixed-media artists with unique perspectives.
