About the artist
Yip Yew Chong is a Singaporean visual artist who practises murals, canvas paintings, sketches and installations. A self-learning artist, Yew Chong draws inspirations from his own childhood and everyday life experiences, telling stories of people and places, especially yesteryear, on walls and canvases. He started painting murals in 2015 as a hobby while pursuing his career as an accountant. In response to the recognition he received, he became a full time artist in 2018. Since then, Yew Chong has painted over 50 murals in various parts of Singapore such as Chinatown, Tiong Bahru, and Everton Road, the location of his first mural, near where the artist resides and where Art Porters Gallery is located.
