1994 - Spree

"I took a direct approach to creating this piece, but also threw in a few hidden references to Singapore's past. At first glance, this artwork is just two girls enjoying their shopping with Orchard Road's iconic malls as a backdrop.

However, upon closer inspection, you will notice that they're wearing Dr. Martens, jumpers and pleated checkered shirts. This is a nod to the fashion trends in 1994, when the Great Singapore Sale was first launched. The sunny blue skies and bunting reflect an Orchard Road that most of us are familiar with – energetic and celebratory."
