Not Just a Little Red Dot: Durian (Giclee print)



Limited edition framed giclee print on archival paper. Comes with Certificate of Authenticity.
50cm x 70cm

Hailed as the King of Fruits, the durian is such a divisive fruit that you either love it or hate it. There are two durian species which are native to Singapore. These are the Durio singaporensis, or durian daun, and the Durio griffithii or durian tupai.

In 1956,  Lorong Lew Lian was named after the fruit — “lew lian” means durian in the Hokkien dialect. This is one of many roads in the Upper Serangoon Road area named after local fruits. I gave the King of Fruits a kaleidoscopic spin, and hopefully it will not be as polarising as its smell and taste.

Limited to 100 prints and is authenticated. Comes with a white frame.

About the ‘Not Just a Little Red Dot’ collection

When someone mentions ‘Singapore’, what comes to mind?

Despite its small land footprint on the world map, Singapore has taken huge strides and big leaps since independence to transform into one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. In Singapore’s transformation journey, iconic national symbols and landmarks were created along the way to represent Singapore in the world, and unite all citizens as one.

Created in my signature contemporary and tactile style, each piece in the collection is inspired by an iconic national symbol or landmark from significant milestones in Singapore’s history and present day developments.

The name of the area where the landmark is located is ‘stamped’ on the artwork, marking its historical significance in Singapore’s history.
