Playing With & For The Community
This is a throwback entry to the end of 2015, in November, we completed 2 wall murals at Siglap East district by 2 young painters, Jamie Tan & Justin Lim who are currently still studying in LASALLE College of the Arts.
This is a commission project by Housing Development Board and it requires a concept and design of the murals to reflect the likes and feedback from the residents in the area. Residents provided their experiences and feedback from the Travel trips which resulted in this mixed media wall mural containing wood pieces installed on the wall as postcards of the residents trip.
The other wall was on the theme of Food! This was easily enjoyable as the residents could identify easily which local food they like and what local food they would like to paint. The artists and assistants helped facilitate the residents’ workshops and taught them painting techniques using enamel paints.
This is the result of a 4 month project, starting from conceptualisation, planning, designing, facilitation and actual painting. Here are pictures taken from the day of painting!
