SG’s Iconic Past Present and Future PlayGrounds is the third collaborative piece of artwork by artists Douglas Leong and Jtmuses (Joyce Tan), under a mentor/mentee arrangement.
The piece was conceptualised by Joyce; Douglas was taught how to paint this mixed media piece under the watchful eye of his mentor. It uncovers glimpses of our past, present and future “playgrounds”.
Tributes to Singapore’s iconic buildings are:
old national Theatre of the 60s, Cathay Cinema of old, Red Lantern Revolving Restaurant, Big Splash, Upper Seletar Rock Tower, Old Kallang Airport Tower, City Hall/National Gallery, Town Hall/Victoria Concert Hall, Anderson Bridge since 1910, and the new Jewel at Changi Airport.
Evoking connections and memories of play are musical pieces, the way we stringed firecrackers of old and the old kites we used to play with.
