River Tales by Kenneth Lee | Qua x ART:DIS




River Tales by Kenneth Lee

Qua is pleased to announce its latest partnership with ART:DIS Artist Kenneth Lee. The River Tales collections, a harmonious fusion of exquisite linework and the lively sceneries of Singapore.


ART:DIS Kenneth Lee

Kenneth, a young and talented artist from ART:DIS, has always had a deep love for drawing and sketching. His passion for art has only grown stronger over time, and he has developed a unique style that is characterized by incredibly intricate linework. Kenneth's art is a true testament to his unique perspective, which is shaped by his experience of the world as an individual with autism, as he is able to express his creativity with astounding skill and precision.

From an early age, Kenneth's artistic talents were evident.


He would spend hours sketching different objects, refining his skills and experimenting with different techniques. Today, he is a budding artist who has gained recognition for his breathtakingly detailed monochrome sketches. His works are a skillful combination of real-life scenes and his imagination, showcasing his mastery of perspective and spatial design.


About: River Tales

The River Tales artwork masterfully portrays the timeless beauty of Singapore's landscapes. This captivating piece showcases the iconic Singapore River, offering glimpses of the old landscape that includes the historic Collyer Quay from 1971. Collyer Quay holds a significant place in Singapore's history, having served as a vibrant waterfront entrance that facilitated trade activities and contributed to the city's early growth.

In a delightful contrast, the artwork also captures the modern-day landscape, highlighting the well-known architecture that has become an integral part of Singapore's identity. This seamless interplay between the past and present evokes a deep sense of reflection, symbolising Singapore's remarkable journey of progress while cherishing its rich heritage.

The artwork is a poignant celebration of Singapore's transformation, where some buildings along Collyer Quay have been thoughtfully refurbished and preserved to maintain a harmonious blend of old and new. It serves as a testament to the city's commitment to honouring its history while embracing the advancements of the present. Let us be inspired by the vibrant spirit of Singapore, where tradition and modernity co-exist in perfect harmony.
