Title: Dreaming of Old Shanghai
Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Size (cm): 138 x 88
Dreaming of Old Shanghai is an authentic scene of a back alley in Shanghai captured by Mr Yong. The artwork depicts his memory when time stood still. The three coloured mops stand as sentries, watching over the old lady slumber, while the paved floors mirror the interlocking facets of modern life in China. It reflects the intertwining of traditional and modern Shanghai, binding society together.
