About the artwork

Mackenzie Road is situated close to the Little India MRT station. In the past, the road bustled with activity - long queues flocked to Rex Cinemas which opened in 1946, people frequented food stalls and made their way to the nearby bus depot. Portraying the quieter back lane of a row of houses, Ong Kim Seng provides a quieter and more serene perspective of Mackenzie Road.
