This is one of the last community walls that the members of the public painted during the Street Art Fest++ in February 2020. It is also the most significant piece as it involves the participation of Singapore Cambodia International Academy (SCIA), the Singapore Embassy and the Street Art Fest++ Organizing Committee, 100 children from the Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF), one of the two beneficiary organizations supported by the art festival. CCF Founder Scott Neeson’s work can also be seen here.
The colorful background design featuring the traditional Khmer Krama with the symbolic hand gestures of Love and Peace was a collaboration by Singaporean artist Yip Yew Chong and Cambodian-Canadian muralist FONKi. The colorful social fabric is represented here to highlight that children are the hope of our future.
This is a meaningful representation of the resilience, cooperation and peaceful coexistence of the various members of the Cambodian and Singaporean community, and symbolizes peace, love, aspiration and hope for the younger generation of our peoples.
The Community 3 mural was purchased by Worldbridge Group and installed at WB Arena at Chak Angre Krom (along National Road 2).
It was the last mural to be unveiled, which have come full circle on the commemorative activities for the 55th anniversary year of diplomatic relations between Cambodia and Singapore. It is especially poignant that date of the unveiling of the last mural, coincides with the media launch of the festival exactly one year ago on 18 December 2019, and that the celebration of diplomatic relations between Cambodia and Singapore draws to a close at the very place where it was officially launched on 15 February 2020 – at the WB Arena, a Cambodia-Singapore joint venture development.
