The Lantern Dance
Acrylic Painting, Silkscreen Printing & Stitchwork on Canvas
The Shophouse artwork is reflective of Singapore culture and heritage. Shophouse buildings can be found all over the island. These stately buildings are a wonderful expression of the blending of a work and living space.
At the famous heritage district Chinatown, red and yellow Chinese lanterns hang cheerfully in front of the 3 for $10 store. The bustling market is speckled with numerous “Buy one get one free” and “3 for $10” shops. Peddling all kinds of souvenirs, jewellery and traditional craft, it is the ideal place for foreign visitors to choose gifts and to take a slice of Singapore back home.
