Not Just a Little Red Dot: Tiger Beer



Acrylic on canvas
60cm x 75cm

Singapore’s first locally brewed beer, Tiger Beer, was introduced in October 1932. From a local beverage, to a local icon and now a renowned international brand, mention Singaporean beer and most people will immediately think of the ubiquitous Tiger Beer that can be found literally at every kopitiam, coffee shop and supermarket. This is my contemporary take on the iconic Tiger Beer bottle, which is sure to make you take a second look!

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.
