The lo­cal artist

Ten lo­cal cre­atives to look out for

Esquire (Singapore) - - Contents - Words by Der­rick Tan, Joy Ling and Shel­ton Chang

It’s not easy be­ing an artist in our coun­try. We’re not known for our ad­vo­ca­tion of cul­ture (shocker) and while doc­tors, lawyers and bankers con­tinue to give us a run for our money, these good peo­ple cham­pion the best of our lo­cal scene. Here, we chal­lenge the stereo­type that Sin­ga­pore has no grit, by spot­light­ing part-time artists, full-time project directors and dream job hold­ers—paid hob­by­ists—and how they weave into the ta­pes­try of Sin­ga­pore.
