Quintessential SG Shophouses is the first collaborative piece of artwork by artists Douglas Leong and Joyce Tan, under a mentor/mentee arrangement.
The piece was conceptualised by Joyce and Douglas was taught how to paint this piece under the watchful eye of his mentor. The subject of the shophouse was chosen because it showcases the quintessential Singapore Shophouses along Koon Seng Road. This is their attempt to capture this slowly disappearing icon on paper. The painting is further spiced with interesting bits of Straits Peranakan elements on the artwork.
There will be 22 limited prints for sale. Revised editions are available for the next framed prints on tiles.
