Anthony Chua Say Hua incorporates a distinctively Western technique of abstraction to illustrate a street scene in East Coast Road using Chinese ink, revealing his deep impression and influence from both fields.

With his sombre ink washes, Chua evokes a sense of nostalgia and fading time when one contemplates the work. He immortalises a quickly disappearing scene in Singapore’s rapidly urbanising landscape, as the hazy brushstrokes are reminiscent of one’s eroding memories. Chua’s fascination with old shophouses lies in the architectural beauty that he claims does not fade with time.
