CapitaSpring's hoarding gets an artistic upgrade
Those in the central business district are in for a visual treat — the hoarding surrounding the CapitaSpring building site has been transformed into a beautiful work of art by two local artists, Danielle Tay and Ripple Root, which consists of dynamic duo Estella Ng and Liquan Liew.
These massive wall murals depict the artists’ interpretations of CapitaSpring and exemplify what it hopes to be — a unique integrated development offering work, live and play spaces in a vertically connected environment. Think modern serviced residences, floors of offices as well as social and activity spaces amongst lush greenery.
On the inspiration behind her mural, “Pulse of the City”, Tay shared that it came from the name of the building itself. “The word ‘spring’ calls to mind water, the vital element that makes up the majority of the world we live in,” she said. “Without water, there is no life. Life rises from this spring of water, just as the city rises at CapitaSpring.”
Meanwhile, Ripple Root shared that they enjoyed working on their piece, “A Spring In Your Step”. “CapitaLand was very open to all ideas and they really trusted the work. We were very much engaged in a way that helped theartwork develop organically to its final creation.”
To admire these artworks, make a trip to Church Street, where Tay’s painting is on display, and Market Street, where you can view Ripple Root’s masterpiece. The works will be up until the first half of 2021.
