Mareara Trading Co, which recently closed down, was an old school shop which sold toys, hand made by the owner Mr Seow himself. This shop was one of its kind, trying to stay in business among digital games and hi-tech branded toys and global giants like Toys R Us. The artwork is an attempt to keep alive the memory of these small wonders of Singapore, that otherwise might not be important enough to be remembered. It is painted on collaged news print articles about small shops & traders struggling to survive in Singapore.
