While most people would simply walk past them, Ocean was inspired by the cranes at the construction site as the way they lined up was visually interesting as a landscape. She recreated the familiar scene of construction at Tiong Bahru using a mix of chinese painting and printing.
How we created it?
To highlight the beautiful strokes of chinese paint, we kept the rest of the shawl clean minimal and played with the same theme of 'Cranes' with our own interpretation of origami paper cranes as a playful pattern.
