The best start is at the National Museum of Singapore where the city’s oldest museum is surrounded by colossal models. It’s also next to Fort Canning Park, home of the ASEAN Sculpture Garden. But first, get up close with six ridged granite slabs (20 Tonnes by Han Sai Por), a three-metre-tall United Nations Peace Monument for Asia (Let There Be Peace by Alexandra Nechita) and giant chili pepper (Pedas Pedas by Kumari Nahappan).
Whoever says Singapore is only filled with modern skyscrapers, HDB flats and traditional shophouses needs some serious schooling. Fact, the city is peppered with a plethora of public art that captures our imagination, from street art to sculptures. From a giant, floating baby in the gardens to a mythical lion-fish creature by the waterfront, this sculpture trail makes for an enlightening walk that combines art and nature together. The best bit? It’s art without charge.
