Siang Hoi's love for nostalgia translates itself into numerous paintings of the Lion City's skylines, ethnic enclaves and Chinese junk. A VSA(S) artist popular with tourists, private collectors and corporations, Siang Hoi often plays with his representation of building facades to better capture the essence of the street and the architectural presence of individual buildings. "Art is a means for me to communicate with people. I enjoy painting buildings, especially the disappearing scenes of Singapore such as old Chinatown and around the Singapore River. I get my inspiration from postcards and old photographs. I will also visit the places I want to paint whenever I have the time," he says.
