Yip Yew Chong, a Singaporean self-taught Artist, has painted over 70 street murals since 2015 when he started dabbling in art while holding a full-time Accounting job. In mid 2018, he left his Accounting career to become an artist.
His street murals often reflect realistic yet whimsical scenes of local life, especially of a bygone era. The murals’ realism and heritage theme are popular amongst residents and tourists alike. Communities also connected his art to other platforms for education, mental healthcare, and heritage conservation.
Yew Chong also dabbles in sketching, digital drawing and canvas painting. He will be having two solo exhibitions in 2021, one in Jan and another in Feb.
