Hey guys! Just wanted to share a quick update that I GOT ACCEPTED AS A 52 TALES MENTEE!
SO SUPER HAPPY! 😂
52 Tales is an art mentorship programme jointly organised by Noise Singapore and the Band of Doodlers. It involves a series of exhibitions to celebrate Singapore’s 52 years of nation building, reminding us that our Singaporean identity is a summation of many years of toil, sacrifice, and contributions of pioneers and future generations alike.
As a mentee, I’ll be working with 51 others (there’s 52 of us!) to create an artwork, a reinterpretation of a Singaporean icon, for exhibition along Orchard Road. More specifically, I’m working on a reinterpretation of Suntec City, while some other mentees will interpret local tales, folklore and Singaporean idiosyncrasies. I’m actually very nervous because I’ve never done digital illustrations before, nor have I ever drawn buildings (that look nice anyway). Hopefully it turns out alright 🙂
I’ll also be involved in curating one of many island-wide pop up art exhibitions together with my awesome group who you must meet!
Yup! I’ll keep you posted! ❤
