Selma used to live in Telok Kurau area and walking along the charming little shophouses at Joo Chiat Road was a childhood activity. Together with Jie Wei's strength in waxing, they both teamed up to create this series of peranakan tiles. Rediscovering the beautiful lineworks of patterns seen on tiles, shophouses and home decoration items, the artists explored in different medium like batik dyes, watercolour, ink and markers to give it a fresher look.

The original artworks were then used as prints to create this scarf..

About the collaboration

These artworks were created for an exhibition - Locality. Memory, Reconstruction, seeking to raise funds for elderly living with dementia. Part of the proceeds will be donated to Sree Narayana Mission Nursing Home. We want to include the artist with special needs and empower them to be part of something meaningful, because they do not have to always be in the receiving end. 

*A portion of the sales goes back to Jie Wie and Sri Naryana Nursing Home.
