I was just walking around when I spotted something that piqued my interest: two different type of flowers growing in the same pot. The first one is bougainvillea, while another one is… some kind of orchid? To be honest, I’m not sure, although I see it around a lot.
It’s something really simple, often overlooked, but to me it represents Singapore. It shows that from one common ground, there can be different flowers produced – which to me portrays the diversity in Singapore. Inspired by that, I made this Art Nouveau pattern. The two different flowers share the same stalk, to show that they have a common ground. I added flowing lines at the background to represent the flow of life, hence overall this piece represents the life of Singaporeans, harmony in diversity.
