Artist's description:

Doraemon (ドラえもん) is a popular Japanese manga series written and first published in 1969.  It is one of the best-selling manga in the world, having sold over 100 million copies.

I believe most of gen X & Y are familiar with Doraemon. We grew up with this robotic cat who has a pocket from which he produces items known as "gadgets", which range from toys and medicines, to technology from the future.

I wanted something Singaporean in the painting that has everything under one roof? I thought NTUC Fair Price is the perfect example. It is the largest supermarket chain based in Singapore and its social mission is to provide affordable food , daily necessities, household items and many more for the better of the community.

Similarly, Doraemon, who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a pre-teen boy named Nobita Nobi (野比のび太 Nobi Nobita)who is an average student in school. He comes from an middle class family. Nothing outstanding about him except his undying love for his childhood sweetheart. This boy clearly represent a major demographic of the society.

Coincidentally, both NTUC and Doraemon are BLUE in color. And I strongly believe, both will be around for a long time.

Can you see the similarity now?
