Most people living in Singapore
love black- and white homes for their unique aesthetic qualities.
On my arrival
in Singapore I was initially drawn to the distinctive black and white striped
that provide shade on the verandas of these stately homes.
Singapore's B & W bungalows
were originally built during the British colonial days and are located in
various parts of the Island. Hidden in the thick jungles of Singapore they seem
to carry with them stories
of the past. I can imagine a time in Singapore when
the everyday life must have been very different to
what it is today. It is because of these stories, that
are still lingering on in these old grand houses, that I
chose them as my subject
matter to be depict through this series of art works. Through these
Black and Whites I hope to share more of the
stories that Singapore has to share.
