Caterpillar, Monster and Whale


Caterpillar, Monster and Whale





These 3 murals were commissioned by Ogilvy & Mather and
completed in March 2011.

IMAGINE windows to another world.

These murals were mounted in 3 bus stop adshel at
different locations in Singapore. When viewed from the
front, these murals would blend with the background even
in their illustrative and studs-out form.

Working with the creative team, we worked out the technical
details and dimensions before I was given the photo
collages to sketch out and dot inked.

Each piece measures around 1.2m x 1.8m and used a total
of over 97,000 pieces of 1x1 plates.

These 3 murals were submitted as entries in the
Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2011.
All 3 pieces picked up a Silver Lion each and the Whale
also made its way into the finals in illustration for
the Design Category.

Artist side notes: This is surely one the more quirky murals
I've done so far. The sketching and dot inking process from
photo collages was quite tricky in some areas but I'm glad of
the final results.
