Something, Somewhere, Somewhen


Time Out says

You've definitely seen Yip Yew Chong's works around, whether it's murals of bird cages in Tiong Bahru or vibrant, district-inspired commissions in Chinatown. His murals are splashed across some of the country's most popular enclaves. After all, he is one of Singapore's most popular street artists. 

On January 12, his birthday, Yip Yew Chong brought his artworks from the streets to the gallery in his first solo exhibition. Titled Something, Somewhere, Somewhen, the exhibition will be held at Art Porters Gallery and will run until March 14. Art collectors can look forward to take home a piece of Yip Yew Chong's iconic mural art for their homes. 

The exhibition comprises a total of nine triptych paintings and 15 sets of painted objects. Wander around the exhibition and you're bound to find something familiar – whether you've seen it on a mural, an old photo, or in your memory. But exactly where and when? That nod to nostalgia has inspired the exhibition's title: Something, Somewhere, Somewhen

You'll his signature style translated onto canvas, as Yew Chong has retained the brushstrokes and techniques from his murals. In doing so, the artist emotively captures the ordinary day-to-day and transfers heartwarming Singaporean slices of life onto canvases and objects.

The exhibition runs until March 14 and is being held concurrently with Indonesian artist Mulyana's solo exhibition, so this is your chance to catch showcases by two of the region's most renowned names.
