A Day at the Beach


















We created this painting of the family at a beach scene for this resort style interior of a Five-room HDB in the North of Singapore. The painting invokes feeling of idyllic happy times which is pleasing to the eye and picturesque in natural simplicity.  The earthly colours of real sand created on the painting was made to match the furniture and the wall colours while the blue sky brings calmness to the mind.

The Eight immortals

















Our artist spent 2 weeks to complete this beautiful painting of the eight immortals.  The Eight immortals from Chinese folklore worked together to eventually cross the extremely rough Eastern Sea, with turbulent waves. Lü Dongbin proposes that each immortal cross the sea through his or her special skills by projecting something onto the sea surface. So, Iron Crutch Li throws his instrument-the crutch (or "bottle gourd" in other versions of the story); Han Zhongli hurls his palm-leaf fan; Elder Zhangguo puts his "paper donkey" into the sea and other immortals all cast their own instruments.

This story is used to symbolize overcoming difficulties or doing something marvelous through someone's special skills.  This painting can be hung in places that require and encourage teamwork such as offices, project site offices, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, military organisation etc.

Rose and Passion


















Bedroom, the part of our house we spend most of our time in.  We love to put paintings that suggest passion, calmness, playfulness, mystic or surreal in bedrooms.  In this particular showroom of the master bedroom, we placed a bold red close-up rose painting on a wall with a brown textured wallpaper.  This warm colour combination provides a nice contrast to the purity of the white pillows and bed sheet on the mattress.

In this master bedroom of a executive HDB flat, we customised a beautiful painting of the Fenghuang.  This painting composition has very positive connotations. It is a symbol of high virtue and grace. The Fenghuang also symbolizes the union of yin and yang.

In ancient China, they can often be found in the decorations for weddings or royalty, along with dragons. This is because the Chinese considered the dragon and phoenix symbolic of blissful relations between husband and wife, another common yin and yang metaphor.


We contrast the painting against the bold black coloured wall by having a golden border for the painting which gave it a rich look.

Art Installation of a Huge Painting

We love this project we did for our customer who live in the west of Singapore.  He likes Celtic Art as he comes from Ireland.  
We had a few rounds of discussion about the type of Celtic Art and the colour scheme that will fit and finally decided on this beautiful grand piece.  Next we explored the biggest size of the canvas and proportion that will suit the living room and the chandelier.
On the day of the installation, we catered for special transport to bring in the huge 2.65 x 2.5m painting mounted on a specially wrapped container.



Before we install the painting, we clear the space below where it is to be installed.  Furniture were moved aside carefully.  Then we erected the scaldfolding on a layer of curtain that we spread on the floor.


The painting is then carefully unwrapped and hoisted up onto the wall that was prepared with brackets.  The painting is being installed onto the wall with brackets and screws to support the weight of it.

Next, we touch up the parts of the paintings that have screws on it and give the top part a good wipe.

After the painting was hung up. The floor was mopped clean and the furniture were being put back to original positions.















And the final outcome is a masterpiece.  The owner love it so much that he insured it.

Mural of Flowers

















The mural of flowers on the feature wall at the end of the corridor was created to complement the deco of the living room in a condominium in the west of Singapore.  We completed this project in 2 days and the customer even gave us a thank you card which made us really happy.

Penthouse



















In this Penthouse unit in Sembawang, we created two paintings of different colour scheme to separate the moods of the two different areas.  Yet we made considerations to have complementary colour schemes for the two paintings as the audience is able to see the art from the living room area.

At level one, this earthly toned art fits in with the surrounding dining furniture and plant sculpture.  At level two, the blue abstract art brings a sense of tranquility to the interior.

Abstract Art in Living Room















We created this abstract art to complement the colour scheme of the sofa and wall colours in this condo unit in the Yishun.  When selecting art, it is important that the art is proportionate to the wall space available after the furnitures are being placed.
