Yip Yew Chong
What A provision shop cluttered with Khong Guan biscuit tins and salted fish, a lady on a stool scrubbing laundry with a wooden washboard and a sudsy pail of water, and roosters ambling in a kampong – these slices of life are depicted over three of seven wall murals by Yip, who drew inspiration from growing up on Sago Street. His first piece, Amah, adorns a shophouse wall along Everton Road and was completed in August 2015. Each mural takes the artist between two to 14 days to complete, and they completely fade after about three years – so you’ve still got time to admire them in person. And you won’t have trouble locating these murals: Yip’s website has (very specific) directions to get to them.
