Human x Nature: Unnatural Stories

About this event

In this workshop, artists Darel Seow and Lee Xin Li reveal how they combined their varied interests in architecture, culture and nature to create the site-specific mural “An Unnatural History” that explores the struggle between man and nature along Queen Street.

Learn more about the basics of illustration as they share tips and techniques on how to craft narratives and incorporate stories visually, based on their own experience and collaboration. Participants will get to develop their own artworks during the session.

Remember to do the following before the workshop!

1. Choose a neighbourhood that you wish to be inspired by for your illustration.

2. Bring along some interesting images and stories on the history of your chosen neighbourhood, as well as elements of nature that interest you.

3. Bonus: For inspiration, check out the Human X Nature exhibition at National Library to discover more about Singapore’s natural environment before attending the workshop.

Note:

- Drawing materials will be provided.

- Please observe safe management measures while you are enjoying the workshop.

Check out the “An Unnatural History” mural and explore a series of upcoming online talks organised by the creators here.

Investigates how art and science are linked to natural history as artist Robert Zhao shares his experience and work in the session on 8 May 2021.
