1st Prize
Remember 1849?
Similar to the theme given, I have also given a new life in my artwork. Simply by re-innovating the basic function of the masking tape. I use the lion, not only as a symbol of the national icon, however, also to resemble that very much forgotten fact that the National Museum used to house a vast collection of zoological items back in 1849.

2nd Prize
Night of the Museum (Light of the Nation)
Even shrouded by shadows and darkness, the former Supreme Court glows with a grand inner beauty, illuminating its surroundings with a sense of vibrancy with its new lease of life. Its renewal as the National Art Gallery in 2012 is represented by the cubist room on the left.

Rebirth of the Old Supreme Court
I am inspired by the architecture of the former Supreme Court that is situated among towering skyscrapers. I wish to highlight the importance of retaining our culture as we progress to become a first-world country. By housing, our Arts and Heritage within this building, I wish to heighten Singaporeans’ appreciation of local Arts.

Merit Prize (Most Creative Entry)

Brillance Unchallenged
I’ve drawn the National Museum and have used Adobe Photoshop to colour it yellow, red, orange and purple to represent youth, brilliance, royalty and happiness. I have also drawn the museum in the sky to show how honourable it is. The sun shining upon it actually means that the museum shall outshine forever. The rainbow represents colourful culture.

Former Bukit Timah Fire Station
This is an oil painting of the fire station from the front view, seen from Old Jurong road. Somehow, it gives off a nostalgic feeling of the past. A building with olden architecture but with modern colouring.

Merit Prize
Spectra
The former Bukit Timah Fire Station is akin to a phoenix reborn from fiery ashes as a hub for new media. At different times of day, it can be a busting hub of people and traffic or a quiet reduce in front of a backdrop of trees.

The Wearing of Glam
Inspired by the old and the new renditions of the Malay Heritage Centre, this art piece signifies the wearing of both past and present. By linking history and converting the old Sultan’s home into a museum, it brings a mixture of heritage, memories and new life.

Colours
My composition shows how Singapore’s National Museum is used for various activities such as the recent “Christian Lacroix”, which has brought life to this historical building. The progression of the colours shows how this ‘new life’ spreads across the landscape, and how this building has a new purpose.

Column
My work depicts one of the columns found in the former City Hall. The symmetrical patterns and intricate carvings make for an interesting composition. I also tried to portray some of the worn out textures of the building.

Merit Prize

Outlined in Black
I have attempted to adapt a Chinese painting style and feel to my painting. It is done first using my impression of the buildings, and then drawn over with black and white to make it stand out. This technique represents “Our heritage, a new life”, that the new restoration of the buildings makes them shine.

A New Life
My painting depicts a morning scene at the former Supreme Court of Singapore. It intends to highlight the majestic structure, emphasized through the use of bold strokes and a strong perspective line. However, the greeneries and dynamics of people around the building accentuate and portray the vivacious side of it.

Old School
The painting seeks to capture the old charm of the former Methodist Girls’ School, while uniting it with the creativity and modernity of its new life. Thus an array of colours is chosen to represent Old School’s artistic atmosphere; and its richness, the warmth, culture and history of the place.

The Bookshelf (Library)
Pillars made up of standing books, whole building is like a bookshelf. Roof is made up of open book. There will be carnival outside the library also. My idea is to make it into a magical library. Like the pillars, bookshelf will move.

Crossing Over
The National Museum is portrayed as a place where the past meets the present, and also the future. In this illustration, there are all sorts of people – male & female, young & old, from different races and time periods. It is the essence of the museum itself: where we can learn about people from across the nations and time periods.

Merit Prize
Timeless Cohesiveness
The image’s seamless juxtaposition of old and new, which creates a balanced and architecturally appealing sight inspired me. Using paints and pencils, I intended to bring out the nostalgia and futurism infused within the image. The picture shows no, contrary to popular belief, that past and present can indeed exist together beautifully.

Merit Prize
Color of the Night
Inspired by the lighting which makes the museum stand out from others when the night comes, it also becomes a piece of art itself. Combined with natural light at night, the museum looks even more majestic with its colour.
Early morning depict the beginning of a new day – a new life.

A Million Flavours
Using ice-cream as an inspiration, I think the National Museum could use a splash of colours. A nostalgic ice-cream palour situated outside brings people of all ages together.The ice-cream palour offers various flavours, the place automatically gets a splash of activity and vibrancy. I have used this style of drawing to make it look as abstract as possible. Strict straight lines just do not fit the palette.
