Singapore Street Art

Single Shot #3

There’s no need to travel up to Penang to see the street art there as there are great ones right here in Singapore. The picture shows a portion of a large mural which paintings of South American Indians in Haji Lane.


In 2012, URA red-flagged the graffiti for removal as ‘it does not meet the stipulated pastel shades for conserved shophouses’. After hearing impassioned pleas from the public, URA reconsidered the decision and  said that they appreciates that the artwork characterizes Haji Lane and as such has elucidated that the guidelines for the shophouse facades are not exhaustive, or in other words, one-size-fits-all. Good call.

There are more art pieces along the lane and oh, by the way, you can fing great food in the vicinity.
