Urban Garden 3
The artwork presents a contrast between nature and the urban scenario of Singapore. The architecture of the island displays a range of influences and styles from different places and periods. These range from the electic styles and hybrid forms of the colonial period to the tendency of contemporary architecture. Therefore, keeping in mind I have tried to showcase the wealth of Art Deco, the style that is architecturally popular in Singapore. The colors that I have used are inspired by Peranakan tablewear, keeping in mind the bright flora of Singapore.
Quite apart from the aesthetics of the Art Deco style, I have tried to camouflage the cityscape witht the flora. Just like nature grows from the idea of a seed and reaches out to its surroundings, a building or design must grow, as nature grows from the inside out. A building in my design is therefore symbolic of an organism and mirrors the beauty and complexity of nature.
