An art walk through Chinatown.
Yip Yew Chong‘s murals are highlights of many tours through Singapore. They are colorful and extremely Instagram-able, yet at the same time they tell a segment of the Singapore story from a more innocent time. The older ones among us might notice familiar scenes and nostalgic items painted into the walls. On this walk, we want to tell you about the stories that inspire this murals, and share with you Easter Eggs and little secrets that we have discovered over the years.
Join us as we go for a walk through time, using the murals as a gorgeous visual reference to share with you what it was like growing up in retro Chinatown
Price Reduced – Originally curated for Yip Yew Chong’s first solo exhibition, “Something Somewhere Somewhen” that ended on 14 Mar 2021
Yip Yew Chong is a Singapore artist that grew up in Chinatown. His art is inspired by his childhood memories and tell the stories of a more innocent time. The art is intricately detailed, and we love how we discover new things with every viewing. His most visible pieces are the murals that can be seen in many of our ethnic districts. We feel that the Chinatown ones come from a place of love.
Join us as we go for a walk down memory lane. On this tour, you will get to:
Our tours will follow all current Safe Distancing Measures (SDM) as prescribed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) during the Circuit Breaker (CB) period.
This will include limiting the number of guests allowed on each tour. Guest in one tour group may also have to be further divided into smaller sub groups with sub group size mandated by the current SDM
With narrow corridors and maze-y passageways, it is easy to get lost in the charming suburban district of Blair Plain. Join us for a walk through this tranquil district where we will bring you to our favourite chill out areas, some gorgeous Instagram spots and also an art gallery with hidden depths.
Hear the stories, taste the history. This small-group, small-bites tour will bring you to sample from some of the oldest food stores in Singapore.
