Sofitel Singapore City Centre - Luxury hotel - Yip Yew Chong brings Stories from Yesteryear exhibition to Sofitel Singapore City Centre

Yip Yew Chong brings Stories from Yesteryear exhibition to Sofitel Singapore City Centre

Singaporean artist Yip Yew Chong has been beautifying the city-state’s streets for years with his vibrant street murals and now, for the first time, brings an intimate exhibition titled Stories from Yesteryear to the Sofitel Singapore City Centre. The exhibition, which features 24 canvas paintings and 4 digital artworks will be on display in the hotel from 26 February 2021 to 31 March 2021.

Painted between 2017 and 2021, the scenes in the paintings are panoramic yet intricate and provide a visual history of Singapore including major cultural festivals and traditions such as the Mid-Autumn Festival, the Haj, Chingay and the Hungry Ghost Festival. Yew Chong grew up in Chinatown and now resides in Tanjong Pagar, thus his intimate knowledge of the area’s legends and stories evokes a sense of travelling back through history.

Journey with us as we curate an exclusive staycation experience, complete with access to Yip Yew Chong’s exhibition in the hotel and complemented by a Peranakan-inspired dining adventure at Racines and 1864.

Access to Yip Yew Chong’s Exhibition is available too for dining book under An Immersive Peranakan-Inspired Dining Experience offer.*
