My Photo Of An Elderly Man Staying At Singapore's HDB one-room Rental Flats Featured In My Paper, The Straits Times and OMY Documentary Talk Dated 9 March 2015

Long-time readers know that I am a self-declared street-art-hunter. I wrote about street art in different cities and countries, also about murals and street art in Singapore. There are some which i have discovered at a Clarke Quay underground bridge along Singapore River where walls were covered by mural painting done by Social Creatives in collaboration with SG cares, successfully spiced up the ambient in the tunnel. Deep down in my heart, it is not just a simple mural or an art, I believe it encompasses a strong social statement that a community can work together to bring an idea across to the people locally and globally in times to come.
Social Creatives is a Singapore-based, non-profit arts social enterprise. Since its founding in 2007, the group has actively worked towards making Singapore a more colourful city, both visually and emotionally. Social Creatives collaborates with a wide range of people, including established and aspiring artists, community groups, corporate enterprises, people with disabilities, troubled youth and local volunteers. Through the joint creation of public artworks, the group’s aim is to bring people together to transform bland or ignored city spaces into colourful, vibrant destinations that attract locals and tourists alike, and to create a sense of connection among Singaporeans themselves, as well as between residents and their city.
