Artwalk Singapore is a street-art focused initiative that caters to audiences interested in the background of Singaporean street art and its development. We have recognised that there are no consistent street art tours curated by artistically-trained professionals despite the presence of more than 20 murals across the three popular heritage sites (namely Chinatown, Little India and Haji Lane). Therefore, Artwalk Singapore has been developed to encourage constant interaction with these street artworks throughout the year. This initiative seeks to educate the public about contemporary street artists and how their artworks reflect the cultural and social thought and practices of our country’s inhabitants. Most importantly, the platform will also work towards serving asa database for local street art, connecting with its practitioners to ensure that their artistic experiences and voices are authentically shared.
Artwalk Singapore was founded by Singaporean Artist, A’shua Imran and Art Manager, Marianne Tan, both graduates from LASALLE College of the Art. The pair met at the annual Singapore Art Week in 2018, where Marianne served as an arts programmer, and A’shua as a commissioned artist. They began working on Artwalk Singapore shortly after with the intention to educate the public through walking tours and to see the art form continually gain the recognition it rightfully deserves.
