Starting 12 January 2021, members of the public can collect and take home a piece of Yip Yew Chong’s iconic mural art! Once scattered all over the streets, Yip Yew Chong is bringing his artworks to a gallery in his first solo exhibition. The artist, whose evocative murals loved by Singapore residents and visitors, has created collectable artworks. Fans of Yew Chong can now enjoy scenes of his street art to relive nostalgic moments in the form of a canvas.
The exhibition comprises a total of nine triptych paintings and 15 sets of painted objects. One is bound to find something familiar in the exhibition, whether having seen that something on a mural, an old photo, or in one’s memory; but exactly where and when? Something, Somewhere, Somewhen hopes to evoke that sense of poignant nostalgia. Retaining the brushstrokes and techniques from his murals, Yew Chong emotively captures the ordinary day-to-day and transfers heartwarming Singaporean slices of life onto canvases and objects.
