Yip Yew Chong’s Heritage Mural Trail

Chinatown

Chinatown, Telok Ayer

Looking for some artsy street art for the ‘gram? Away from the CBD drag lies many good spots that feature Yew Chong’s popular murals. An accountant turned self-taught mural artist, Yew Chong first pursued this side interest of his when he was given the permission to paint some murals on a wall at Everton Road. The public appreciated his artwork that thematically underpinned Singapore’s rich historical heritage and cultural elements.

He eventually decided to pursue his passion full-time, with the aim of using wall murals to record historical sights and stories, mostly from his childhood memories. You can easily spot his masterpieces at Spottiswoode Park Road or along the side of the corridor as you step into 51 Waterloo Street. Where else? We are not spilling the beans, but here’s a hint. There’s a total of 14 hidden stories waiting for you to discover along the sidewalks of Chinatown, Telok Ayer and even Kampong Glam – 2 of them are on our buildings. So, be ready for this adventure!

Want more engagement? Go check out LocoMole, an experiential discovery mobile app that can bring the murals alive through Augmented Reality (AR). This is in partnership with the artist himself, so if you are lucky enough, you will get to listen to the stories behind these murals by Yew Chong himself while uncovering little surprises off these walls. One last thing! Remember to bring some props… and a friend along to take the perfect picture for you! Say cheese!
