About the artwork

With the free port status of Singapore, it became an epicentre of trade in the 60s and 70s. The river was amass with activity, with coolies offloading goods from bumboats for import and export. Lim Tze Peng endeavours to preserve memories of the Singapore River in its original state, providing a snapshot into the past. Singapore River (Four Boats)
