Mr Gong brings his dream city into sharp focus in this painting which won him his second UOB Painting of the Year Award. The work is inspired by the artist's impressions of Singapore. Having lived in the city for more than a decade, he wanted to capture its beauty and prosperity through its architecture. The artist reveals the city's multiple facets in exquisite detail. Older iconic buildings that speak of Singapore's rich culture and history meld with the modern skyscrapers of this Asian financial centre.
