#DreamwithLS - LS X Inkten

With the launch of #LS X Inkten collection, we got to know the artist better, beyond her gorgeous artworks. Our #dreamwithLS campaign supports aspiring, budding artists and for the first time, we're so honoured to work together with Inkten on a series of both collaborative and original artwork (Originals by Inkten) created exclusively for us. About Inkten; Inkten’s work takes on an analytical perspective on her view into the future of mark-making.

#selbsseries | Up your style with #LSEssentials

Being a mom of 2 only means less time for myself. Although I must say that my baby number 2 has been real easy and I'm a lot calmer with this whole motherhood thing. Past few weeks, I'm slowly tuning back to work, doing photoshoots which forces me to put on some make up and be camera ready. Its nice to see myself not in homey clothes and looking like I'm just out of bed the whole day.   During one of the shoots, when my husband saw me in full make up and our new LSEssential shawl, he said to me - "Hey this is a fresh look, you look chic." I thought to myself for a moment - wow...

#lullyslist | #my1959

Hey! I'm sure you have seen our recent shawl design on our Instagram feed and stories. It's a tribute to 60 years of our National State Crest, National Pledge and National Anthem. The team and I were so honoured to be part of #my1959. When briefed to create a design based on these symbols, we chose the National Anthem.  We have all sang the Majulah Singapura all our lives during school assembly but do we really relate every word of it to our lives now? The composer Zubir Said is stranger to none. I wanted to know more about this talented man and his thought process while composing our National Anthem. In excitement, I went to the nearest library from...

#lullyslist | Dream with LS: Ocean G.

Our third and last dreamer for this season is Ocean G. She is a graphic designer who enjoys painting with ink (me too)! We were both inspired by Wu Guanzhong who has Western and Eastern influences in his Chinese painting. You can see his works here.  Fun fact: Ocean's father won the bid to construct our Wisma Geylang!  It's only natural that her likings for architecture was the main inspiration for the Pinnacle shawl. Ocean painted one of her favourite sightings of these building with cranes. The linear structure of Pinnacle Journey and diagonal lines of the cranes was achieved by printing lines. Drawing these lines would give an entirely different look.  Between the printed lines are other mark making layers for...

#lullyslist : Dream with LS: Art Sam

Introducing the second dreamer, someone I once shared our art teaching journey with; Art Sam. Wait, just remembered we were also studio mates in LASALLE. I've always seen Art using mixed media in her paintings. She gathers found objects like wood and materials like twine and bubble wraps which she used for Balik Kampung shawl. The Kampung featured in this shawl is Kampung Lorong Fatimah located near the Woodlands causeway. It was until 1989 that it was demolished to make way for the expansion of Woodlands Checkpoint.   While growing up, I never had the chance to experience living in a kampung. What I see on tv and pictures of friends visiting their relatives made me curious of what it would...
