A Changed World Exhibition @ National Museum of Singapore

50 sketchers from USK-Singapore group are currently exhibiting their sketches at the National Museum of Singapore. This is our very first public exhibition with the museum. We count it a privilege as one of the very few community group to be invited into the museum. Our little exhibition ties in with a current exhibition by pioneer Singaporean artists entitled 'A Changed World'. This weekend I will also be making a short presentation about UrbanSketchers and the free-hand sketching movement to the public.

Below are two of my own submission to show the ever changing landscape of Singapore. I hope it also shows you how diverse and multi-racial our urban Singapore is.

Cafe Sketches

Cafes and hip coffeeshops are springing up everywhere in Singapore. In fact many of them are run by young entreprenurs who really know their coffee and cakes. Every cafe has its unqiue character and ambience. Some decors make great sketching subjects. They often have an interesting menu of drinks and own concoction of home made desserts too. Best way to chill out and stay out of the scorching Singapore sun. I usually draw my coffee and cakes quickly before consuming them. Cafes are good places to practice my people sketching too. Can you spot my fellow cafe sketching buddy Tony Chua & Jenny Sim in my sketches? Tolido's Expresso Nook, Singapore
