Description

Nanking Street / Giao Keng Kao (in Chinese – Hokkien dialect means ‘gambling corner’). The street was located in Chinatown. From the late 19th century it was infamous for its gambling dens and secret societies. These activities have since been wiped out.

This charming miniature art print, encased in a dark wood frame, captures the vibrant past of Nanking Street in Singapore, brought to life by the intricate and masterful strokes of watercolour. The scene depicted is rich with historical context, featuring the bustling street life and the iconic shophouses that are emblematic of Singapore’s cultural heritage.

The art piece is a celebration of the city’s architectural beauty and the liveliness of its streets in the old days. Each figure and structure is rendered with attention to detail, allowing the viewer to be transported back in time to the days when Nanking Street was a throbbing vein in the heart of Singapore.

Perfect for those who cherish the nostalgia of yesteryear Singapore or wish to add a piece of historical charm to their decor, this miniature artwork is a window into the soul of a city that has always pulsed with life and activity. Whether as a thoughtful gift to a loved one with ties to Singapore or as an addition to your personal collection, this print is a little slice of the past preserved forever in paint.
