ABOUT
Singapore, a city rivalled by few and marvelled by many, was oft-seen as an ultra-modern metropolitan with beautiful skyline, slick urban architecture amidst lush greeneries, a bustling node with modern menus, swanky rooftop-bars, catwalk couture and anything contemporary. It is almost too easy to overlook the layers beyond the glossy façade. However, beyond these new thrills is a place with history and depth, contrast and unity, contradiction and reconciliation.

As urban sketchers, we seek to illustrate the dynamic city state that presents a smorgasbord of inspiration, both old and new, east and west, simple and sophisticated, nostalgic and visionary. From the smoky temples and heritage buildings in the shadows of skyscrapers to art-deco buildings amongst high-rise public housing in Tiong Bahru to a harmonious blend of cultures in Little India, Kampong Glam, Chinatown, see Singapore unfold through the artists’ lenses, showing the world every corner of Singapore, one sketch at a time.

We draw Singapore together. Join us in this journey.
