This jaunty work comprises colourful local fabrics collected from the artist's family and friends and bitumen, a sticky tar-like substance found in city roads. Full of energy and motion, this portrait of Singapore's multicultural identity and heritage goes beyond the usual celebration of Singapore's diversity. It offers depth and texture through the somewhat anarchic, chaotic movement created by the artist's expressive brushwork.
