Shoppers and commuters at the Marina Bay Sands promenade (outside the Art Science Museum) were treated to a rare street performance by Singaporean Water Calligraphy Artist, Alew Liew. Liew’s street performance drew crowds as he penned a timely reminder for fellow Singaporeans. Passers-by were caught in their tracks as the spectacle unfolded before their very eyes.

For close to an hour, Liew drew a symbolic eye in various locations around the Art Science Museum. Using just water, the artistic display left no trace on the ground, yet made its mark with audiences. Children were also invited to try their hands at the art form with Liew’s guidance.

I am really pleased that the audience were very receptive towards the showcase and were really interested to find out more about water calligraphy.”
