Wong Kai Yi (11)
Thomson Branch


Kai Yi has reinterpreted the famous dragon playground into this charming painting. The chicken and the peacock remind one of a time when Singapore was more wild and nature roamed through our city. The level of detail and harmonious colour scheme creates a compelling image.

Chow Yu Yao (9)
Parkway Branch


Yu Yao’s painting of the statue of Raffles overlaid on top of a map of the region is well-executed. The details are carefully painted, from the coastline of the island to the subtle folds in Raffles clothes.

Jaelyn Yap (10)
Thomson Branch


Jaelyn’s painting is a stylized and expressive market scene. The bright colours stand out well against the bold, confident black strokes, creating a sense of the exciting and bustling city and the variety of the old woman’s wares.

Kayla Khoo (11)
Bukit Timah Branch


The subject of Kayla’s painting is simple, yet the use of light and dark tones creates a sense of drama and interest. There’s a strong contrast between the dim interior of the room and the sunny world outside, and a feeling of the student looking outside the window.

Liow Chen Teng (10)
Thomson Branch


Chen Teng’s painting uses colour imaginatively to create atmosphere. The red and blue tones evoke a contemplative and lonely mood that is emphasized by the figure with her back turned. The details of the school uniform are well painted.

Kayla Faith Ong (11)
Thomson Branch


Kayla’s painting is an interesting study of a narrow living room. She has successfully manipulated the colours of the image and emphasized various shapes to create a slightly surreal image. There is a variety of colours, tones and lines. The reflection in the mirror and TV have been well dealt with.

Jodie Zhao (11)
Thomson Branch


Jodie’s painting is both well-conceptualized and well-executed. The reflection of Singapore’s modern cityscape has transformed into a vision of its kampung past. The sunset colours createsa strong feeling of time passing.

 

Secondary Art Winners:

Natasha Wong (14)
Bukit Timah Branch


Natasha’s painting of shophouses is made interesting by the use of perspective and variety. Each shophouse is unique and carefully painted, with its own colour scheme and architectural style. The bright colours and sharp details contrast with the softly and sensitively painted sky.

Christal Song (14)
Bukit Timah Branch


Christal has chosen to do her painting in an illustrative style, and executed it consistently and well. The use of bright colours and rounded shapes harmonizes the image, and there are many imaginative elements such as the indoor grass, posters and peach sky.
