About

Moving Memories presents seven of Yip Yew Chong’s life-sized murals which seek to express the romance of “places and moments… that blend sights, sounds, smell and tastes”.

An accountant by day, Yew Chong sees painting as a way to express himself. His murals interweave his personal memories with that of residents in Singapore, and have captured the imagination of many.

Savour these moments of our tangible and intangible heritage, such as barbers in back lanes, traditional kopi-making and roadside communal satay eating, as they come alive through animation, soundscape and projection.

The murals featured in this installation are:

  • Barber, September 2015
  • Coffee Story, December 2016
  • Pasar, April 2016
  • Provision Shop, December 2015
  • Kampung, November 2015
  • Satay Club and the Kampung Scene from Thian Hock Keng mural, July 2016 and April 2017
