Geylang is home to over 100,000 residents, rich in its history of integrating newcomers to Singapore. The word “Geylang” is also believed to be come from Gelang Pasir or Gelang Laut, which is a type of edible creeper.
With this colourful heritage as their starting point, 5 artists have created vibrant art murals around the neighbourhood, inspired by the residents, the environment and their thoughts on nature.
Derived from micro-stories of the lives and people in Geylang collected through writing workshops with residents, these artists have also co-painted these murals with keen mural arts enthusiasts in a curated and safe process.
Featuring works by artists:
• Ink & Clog
