These quintessentially Singaporean prints are great for adding a burst of colour to your home.
Singapore Snakes & Ladders by Ming // Playgrd, $20, from www.naiise.com.
Self-trained illustrator and artist Ming reimagines our iconic HDB blocks and childhood playgrounds with a touch of fantasy and a riotous palette of colours. The effect is both amusing and intriguing.
Artchi Tiong Bahru Peranakan Print by Julie Williams, $495, from http://shop.sceneshang.com.
The pairing of Peranakan prints and the now fast-disappearing iconic metal gates of old Tiong Bahru flats is UK-born artist Julie Williams’ creative interpretation of her immediate surroundings (she lives in Tiong Bahru) and a conceptual take on Singapore.
Around Singapore Images by Lee Xin Li, $30 for a A4-sized print and $40 for a A3-sized print, from www.naiise.com.
From far, this artwork is just a beautiful blend of colours. Examine it up close, though, and you’ll find it’s a Where’s Waldo-esque piece that amalgamates a number of truly Singaporean images from all around the island – from the Kinetic Rain sculpture at Changi Airport to a spread of hawker food and clothes hanging on a bamboo pole. You’ll have lots of fun trying to identify all of them.
Yong Tau Foo Print by Shu Han Lee, $12, from www.mummyicancook.tictail.com
Inspired by a confused friend who didn’t know how to order yong tau foo, Singaporean graphic designer Shu Han Lee designed this tongue-in-cheek, highly instructive guide, complete with food icons. Practical use aside, its minimalist style adds a cool hipster vibe to any space.
