Art Advisory Services from The Artling
The Amoy St and Telok Ayer areas are the epitome of Singapore's cultural diversity, with historical institutions blending in with modern life. The Artling worked with a Singapore artist who compiled and collaged the patterns found on the tiles of Thian Hock Keng temple and Nagore Durgha shrine to create the 'scales' of the dragon. The traditional tiles were used as a base design to develop on, to create a visually arresting pattern that is more contemporary in style. The large dragon head is another nod towards the rooftop and door embellishments of the Thian Hock Keng temple. The artist also incorporated fish that appear to swim across the wall, inspired by the Chinese 'fish lanterns' from the statues in Telok Ayer Green Park. In this way, the mural will both reflect and build upon the surrounding area's cultural heritage.
“The Artling team is very professional and proactive. They are well-informed and eager to work on all projects (big or small) with the same level of enthusiasm and highly recommended.
The artwork recommendations from The Artling have managed to be a talking point for all our properties and overall has added tremendous value to our projects.”
