LocoMole presents the works of local artist Yip Yew Chong, featuring a selection of his most iconic heritage murals mainly located in Chinatown and Tiong Bahru. These two places are especially dear to his heart – Chinatown was where Yew Chong grew up and Tiong Bahru his childhood playground.
The Yip Yew Chong Street Art Trail is the culmination of a successful collaboration between Yew Chong and LocoMole, a mobile app platform that specialises in self-guided tours of heritage sites in Singapore. Through this project we have blended technology with art and heritage, creating an immersive yet fun learning experience for you. Interact with the murals and transport yourself back to the olden days via Augmented Reality (AR). Partake in the app activities and rediscover the bygone times of these places. Be prepared to gain a deeper appreciation of our heritage, as you uncover details and stories behind the murals from Yew Chong himself.
From Yew Chong and LocoMole, we wish you an enjoyable journey ahead! Happy Trails!
