Motorists may have noticed more wall murals popping up around Singapore in recent years. This growing trend seems to be gaining momentum. The government is starting to allow freer artistic expression by local artists.
Drivers can easily spot these art murals along Haji Lane, Aliwal Street, and Tanjong Pagar, outram park, little india amongst others, adding beauty, colour, and giving your eyes a break from staring at drab boring concrete buildings.
Recently, opportunities have started to get more people involved in street art. One such example is a project recently started by a group known as Thirtytwocm.
A New Take on Street Art
The project, Somerset by Youth, is part of the Orchard Road rejuvenation plan seeking to engage youths 35 and below to revamp “The Somerset Youth Belt”, the stretch along Somerset Road.
