Artist's description:

I did this pen & ink painting of Harry's Bar in the year 2000. Since then it seems to have expanded in Singapore. This one is at Boat Quay having nicely redone this classic 3 storey shophouse.
This kind of building, the ‘shop house’, is a common structure found in South East Asia and certainly in Malaysia & Singapore. The older style of architecture though is getting less and less. The old ones left in Singapore have mostly now been beautifully restored. The character comes out in the old windows and the seeming random design from one shop house to the next. This is one of my earlier works on this subject, dating back to when I was residing in Singapore. Here I wanted to to do an illustrative work.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture of the paper and brush strokes of the painting.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe your home, a fave building, a storyboard collage from a recent travel? Contact me.
