The accountant-turned-artist will showcase his murals in the ‘Something, Somewhere, Somewhen’ exhibition at the Art Porters Gallery from now till Mar 14.
For the first time since he started painting as a hobby in 2015, local mural artist Yip Yew Chong will take his works from the street into the gallery with the Something, Somewhere, Somewhen exhibition.
The exhibition kicked off on Tuesday (Jan 12) at the Art Porters Gallery in Tanjong Pagar and features 27 paintings and 15 objects including tables, chairs, and blinds by the 52-year-old.
A former accountant and self-taught artist, Yew Chong has painted more than 50 murals across Singapore’s heartlands. They include cultural locations such as Chinatown, Kampong Glam and Everton Road, where his first mural titled Amah, or grandma, can be found.
Yew Chong draws inspiration from his own childhood and everyday life experiences to tell stories of Singapore on walls over the city and canvases.
In a Facebook post, Yew Chong thanked those who had supported him all this while.
