Singapore River One (SRO) started its first Underpass Art installation project in January 2013 with the goal of using design and culture as the medium for transformation and rebranding the River. Through this project, SRO hopes to enhance the connectivity between all three Quays (Clarke Quay, Robertson Quay and Boat Quay), and encourage exploration along the entire stretch of the Singapore River.

  • Singapore River One (SRO), Singapore Wildcat Action Group (SWAG) and Mural Lingo champion the conservation of the Leopard Cat


    with a collaborative community art project entitled “The Future of Our Last Wildcat”!

    The Leopard Cat is the last wildcat species found in Singapore, with less than 50 estimated individuals in the wild.

    This mural, made possible with 160 volunteers, reimagines the leopard cat’s habitat with scenes of Singapore’s built-up environment, nature and the Singapore River, bringing an element of the wilderness into the precinct.

  • The Vintage Timeline


    This mural uses a timeline to show the past and present of Singapore, from her humble beginnings till today. The design juxtaposes the early founding stages of Singapore and the current stages of Singapore in the form of a light refreshing illustration to demonstrate the impressive transformation of Singapore from a small fishing village to a modern city.
