PARK SHIN YOUNG

My prints represent the unique characteristics of today’s Singaporean society. To me, the most fascinating aspect of Singapore is its multi-cultural and eclectic society: diverse but not divided, busy yet orderly, where the best of both Eastern and Western worlds coexist. Through Ring of Chaos #, I want to capture these aspects of Singapore in tangling overlaid images which represent diverse ethnicity, culture, and custom, as well as the dynamic and busy lifestyle, over-crowdedness, and the equatorial climate of Singapore. In the Pearl of the Orient #11, the opaque white wash with cutout circles is used to highlight the systematic, orderly and clean city. It seems like dynamic characters and energies from various cultures are prospering inside of a perfect arrangement of law and discipline. Through these prints, I hope you are able to see Singapore the way I see it: the celebration of diverse culture and its uniqueness.
