Love Is… was created by renowned Singaporean artist, Sun Yu-Li, together with 500 Punggol residents, facilitated by ArtBeatz. This iconic project symbolises Punggol’s evolution, unfolding its past, present and future. The work is an artistic journey illustrating memories treasured by the residents, and their vision for Punggol. The artwork captures each participant’s personal message in the unique process of creative expression. Residents have depicted the past through images reminiscent of the tropical and close-knit kampong spirit in Punggol. The passage of time is brought across with the energetic burst of warm colours, emerging from cool colours; accompanied by interpretations of Punggol’s modern landscape and culture. Also portrayed are the residents’ aspirations for an inclusive and progressive community, filled with love, passion and prosperity. Through the artists’ stories, Love Is… immortalises Punggol’s vibrant and growing community.
“Love is…” was commissioned by Waterway Point to commemorate the mall’s official opening on 19 April 2016.
