Not Just a Little Red Dot: Singapore Sling



Acrylic on canvas
60cm x 75cm

Created in 1915 at Raffles Hotel by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon, the Singapore Sling is the quintessential National Cocktail of Singapore. A cocktail that is cleverly disguised as a fruit drink, it allowed women to publicly consume alcohol back in the days. Recreated in my signature style, I’ve also included the recipe for those looking to make their own Singapore Sling at home!

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 year when the symbol was created or when the landmark was completed is ‘stamped’ on the artwork, serving as a timestamp marking its historical significance at various points in Singapore’s history.
