Hues of Koon Seng Rd

ZoyaChaudhary_HuesofKoonSengRd_2017_MixedMedia_61cmx46cm(sm)Acrylic on canvas with collaged newsprint paper, 46cm x 61cm

Koon Seng road is one of the few by-lanes of Singapore where you can visualise what old Singapore looked like. These Peranakan style homes and shophouses are an escape into the past in modern day Singapore. In this artwork, collaged newsprint with shophouses as the background, the old tri rickshaw rider, the pedestrian and the young girl on her bike, form different layers almost placed one on top of the other forming a whole, though, if placed separately would represent a different decade from the other.
