in today’s blog entry, I would like to bring your attention to the Bugis Street Art Project 2012 that is happening at Bugis Junction Shopping Centre from 08 February to 19 February. [Though this featured event is only around for 12 days; be sure not to miss this event because once you miss it, you would have missed a great photo opportunity with Joe’s [the artist] 3D art pieces!
About This Event:
This event is organised and managed by the National Heritage Board and for this particular event, it features internationally renowned street artist, Joe Hill, who will be bringing his brand of interactive 3-Dimensional artworks to the Bras Basah Bugis Precinct. These new artworks are inspired from the heritage and museums of the precinct and promise to a visual spectacle that will be exciting and fun for all ages! Joe will be on-site creating his artwork from 8 – 10 February 2012, so catch him live in action from 8 – 10 Feb 2012 from 1030-1330 and 1430-1700 as he adds the finishing touches to these visual spectacles.
Who is Joe?
He is an international renowned street artist who currently holds the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest and the World’s Longest 3D artwork.
“All Aboard”, One of Joe Hill’s Art Piece [situated near the Bossini Clothing Store]
“Scaling the Dome”, Joe Hill’s Second Art Piece [situated in between MacDonald’s and Starbucks]
So after all the photo-taking, I interacted with Joe and had a mini conversation with him. Through the conversation, he shared that each of the art piece [All Aboard and Scaling the Dome] took him 3 days to complete! So meaning to say, he spent about 6 days creating these two masterpieces and he started creating them since last week! Well, I also found out from him that he has been to all over the world except for Africa. [He probably might have an opportunity to create his masterpiece there soon!] And well, Joe is definitely a friendly, down-to-earth kinda person. It was really nice chatting away with him and well, if you are free from 8 – 10 February 2012, do catch him live in action from 1030-1330 and 1430-1700 as he adds the finishing touches to these visual spectacles. And just for your information, this is Joe’s second time to Singapore and I’m not sure when he would be showcasing his artwork in Singapore again. Trust me, you don’t want to be disappointed!
