Akai Chew explores the concept of informal architecture and presents the getai as a transient, organic and symbiotic architecture, creating new and unexpected places for urban interaction. Presenting it with a straight on elevation approach of photography much influenced by Bernd and Hilla Becher, it is a representation which echoes architectural drawings.
Akai Chew works and lives in Singapore. With a background in architecture, he is an artist and practicing urban explorer. The city is the artist’s muse and playground. His art practice explores the profound relationship between history, humanity and the urban environs.
