THE MUSE PROJECT by JTMUSES
CYBER LION &
by Differently-abled artist – Ernest Wong, 21 Muscular Dystrophy Association Singapore
Ernest often challenges himself as an artist and puts a lot of detail into each of his artwork.
For this piece, he uses adobe illustrator and recreates the mighty and historic lion symbol of Singapore as a cyber lion. He sees the future of Singapore as an intelligent city embracing the digital age in all aspects of work and play, especially in the way we learn.
The ArtScience Museum was depicted as it leads the future of learning with its immersive digital art experiences. The butterflies bring to mind how our green city island is creating Butterfly Habitats and Gardens to Enhance Urban Biodiversity.

Glimpses of Eden:
There is an Eden which we visit in moments of true joy and when we dream in the spirit.
We also experience this JOY when we give back.
Douglas was 3 years old when he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder Spectrum, but this did not stop him from developing and pursuing a keen focus in art.
Douglas is a graduate of Temasek Polytechnic with a Diploma in Media and Interactive Technology. He enjoys creating detailed artworks of drum sets, buildings and vehicles, where his favourite themes are cityscapes and public transportation.
With his passion, he went on to exhibit his artwork at the International Art Expo in Kuala Lumpur in 2007 and since 2009, has taken up painting on canvas at My Art Space.
Since July 2019, I have been mentoring and guiding him in mixed media sketches using watercolours.
“I may look normal, but I have special needs. (Jayden is autistic)
My passion is in entertainment, mainly animation, voice acting, etc.
My dream is to make a TV show based on my artworks.”
Jayden Ong is a digital artist who draws on procreate. Most of his works are cartoons and he expresses his thoughts through characters. His recent works include animated and printed cards for corporates.
