First opened in 1992, Sentosa is a well-known resort island off the southern coast of Singapore. Not only is it home to luxurious resorts, residential enclaves and themed attractions, it also houses more than 170 species of bird and animals.
Sentosa is also synonymous to its beachfront coastline, which comprises the Siloso, Tanjong and Palawan beaches. Inspired by the beachfront quiet respite and protected gentle lagoons, I created this piece to bring the beaches indoors, and to enliven the space through the golden sandy beaches and calming blue lagoon.
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.
