Always full of surprises, Little India gets even more vibrant every year thanks to the big and beautiful murals commissioned for the annual ARTWALK Little India. Take a stroll along Serangoon Road: Shah Rizzal’s “Layers” will delight you with its whimsical reproduction of the shophouses in the old neighbourhood, and you can step into a futuristic Little India imagined by JABA in his work “Daily Delivery.” Right beside Siyamala Bookstore on 82 Serangoon Road is a beautiful mural by Eunice Lim that celebrates the bookstore’s 30-year history in the neighbourhood. The artist’s popular painting of cows still amazes us with its quirky rainbow colours on Kerbau Road, for those who want to visit the beloved murals of past ARTWALK projects.
