Wall mural Artist: Yip Yew Chong (accountant)

If you’re bored this weekend, hunt for Yew Chong’s wall murals which depict everyday life of Singapore in the 1970s. I lived through that era. He’s an accountant turned artist and paints different everyday scenes of our coffee shops, provision shops and kampung. Personally I’ve mixed feelings about these bird cages as I followed my grandma to Tiong Bahru market to do her weekly wet marketing.
