The Raffles Tiger
Acrylic Painting, Silkscreen Printing & Stitchwork on Canvas
‘The Raffles Tiger’ looks back to Singapore’s past, to a time when tigers still roamed this tropical Island. It’s been said that the last tiger seen in Singapore was spotted under the billiard table in the famous Raffles Hotel. Reflecting on these times, Tiger Balm logos hide playfully behind the palm trees. Tiger stripes predominate the top right hand corner of the artwork. Finally, Raffles Long Bar Fans grace the central area of this piece in an elegant yet understated way.
