Kopi Gu You At Heap Seng Leong

ZoyaChaudhary_KopiGuYouAtHeapSengLeong_2017_MixedMedia_92cmx61cm(sm)Acrylic on canvas with collaged newsprint paper, 61cm x 92cm

Recently shut down ‘Heap Seng Leong’ coffee shop stood at this location in Lavendar since 1974. The 1950s kopitiam setting,  with no false ceiling and an coin operated payphone, was as if time had stood still in this coffeeshop while everything else outside modernised. The artwork is an attempt to preserve this tiny little part of history in the visual memory of Singapore.
