Not Just a Little Red Dot: The Helix


Retailing exclusively at Design Orchard, Singapore

Acrylic on canvas
60cm x 60cm

You can’t miss this landmark bridge located at the Marina Bay. Inspired by the geometric arrangement of the DNA, the opposing double helix structures that make up the Helix Bridge is both a scientific and architecture marvel.

In line with the bridge’s symbolism of ‘life and continuity, renewal and growth’, I took inspiration from the DNA replication process, and the web of interconnected biochemical processes needed to sustain life when creating this artwork.      

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.
