Made in Singapore: Public Art by Singapore Artists
Singapore Art Museum, National Museum of Singapore, Asian Civilisations Museum, Merlion Park, Urban Redevelopment Authority
Singapore has many public artworks scattered across the city centre. From traditional figurative bronze statues to more contemporary abstract forms, they tell the story of Singapore’s heritage, aspirations and developments. Many of these works were created by prominent local artists, both established sculptors as well as emerging young artists. This walking trail will introduce some of the public artworks by these artists that have become local icons in their own right.
Located around the central Civic District, the artworks showcase the variety of styles and mediums used. Explore the works of the pioneer generation of Singapore sculptors, such as Aw Tee Hong, Chong Fah Cheong and Lim Leong Seng, who worked predominantly in bronze, alongside the light-hearted, whimsical art of Yeo Chee Kiong, Kumari Nahappan and Tan Wee Lit. Also worth mentioning are the statuesque works by female artists, Han Sai Por and Liu Jilin, both of whom have chosen to work with the very challenging material of stone.
