The oldest terminal at Changi Airport, Terminal 1, opened in 1981 and welcomed its very first commercial flight – Singapore Airline’s flight SQ101 from Kuala Lumpur. Three more terminals and one Jewel Changi later, Changi Airport consistently ranks as one of the world’s best airports.
Peering deeper beneath the retail shops, airport facilities and lifestyle attractions, you will realise that it is the impeccable 24/7 rhythm of airside management and aircraft control on the tarmac that is the lifeblood of Changi Airport. This piece pays homage to the unsung heroes who ensure that the airport runs like clockwork, and it represents the complex and integrated web of works necessary to ensure service excellence.
About the ‘One Degree North’ collection
At only 728km², Singapore is one of the smallest countries in the world. What we don’t have in land area, we more than make up for it through conservation of our heritage, preservation of natural landscapes and enhancement through the built environment. The ‘One Degree North’ collection is inspired by memorable landmarks around Singapore, each telling a story about the area/landmark and also its significance to Singapore. Decipher where the coordinates on each artwork refers to, and you will know the painting title.
Each painting is created in my signature contemporary and tactile style, and can be displayed in various permutations depending on your room decor needs.
