From all walks of life

National Day is just round the corner and as part of celebrating with the nation, artist Kamal Dollah does his part.

Situated outside the Esplanade is a huge canvas with caricatures of different people from all walks of life. From Singaporeans to visitors, these caricatures are done using spray paint.

It gives ordinary individuals a shot at stardom.

Two Feet

It serves as a reminder of natural simplicty within the artificial sprawl of urbanity.

This piece is made out of everyday materials and invites the audience to expand their definition of craft and art.

Titled "two feet", this artwork by Lim Shing Ee is supposed to reflect an artificial experience frozen in perpetuity.

The artificial part is the use of materials in the construction of the artwork. That's what I gather from the information that I have.

Pedas Pedas

This post is more about pluralism rather than sculptures. But here's a little about the sculpture - it can be found at the back entrance of the National Museum of Singapore.

Why do I say that it is about pluralism? Because different people views things differently. And I shall attempt to show it here.

Side view

Back view

Front view

Well ultimately even though all the views seem different, it is all about the same thing. If I am not wrong, pedas means "hot" in Malay.
