WHAT IS URBAN MURAL: LIVE?
The Urban Mural:LIVE! workshop is an exclusive opportunity for participants to learn the techniques of urban mural painting while completing a live art piece that will transform existing public space.
Mural painting is inherently different from other forms of pictorial art in that it is organically connected with architecture, as the use of colours, design, and composition often alters the sensation of spatial proportions.
Taking place within the weekend of Children’s Day, participants will get to work together with artists and volunteers to create the mural titled ‘City of Possibilities’ at the Esplanade Park, a fantastical piece set to inspire our children to dream big, embrace their passions and shape our city with their stories.
is a Singapore-registered social enterprise engaged in the arts, education and publishing. Founded in 2014, their primary focus is and has been on creating opportunities for artists to engage in and practice mural painting in their community.
They recognise and celebrate the particular quality of murals that brings art into the public sphere. To that end, they also operate as an independent platform providing and otherwise sharing information online relating to the history and techniques of mural paintings, with the vision that mural paintings in our community continue to be shaped by and reflect the cultural and social thought and practices of our country's citizens and residents.
Indicative of their commitment to the community, they have pioneered a new model of education in mural painting, through the conduct of team-building mural workshops in educational and cultural institutions. They also provide artistic support to selected community projects with a social impact and reinvest a proportion of their profits into organising projects and events that will benefit the society.
Luke Tan (b.1989) has undergone formal artistic training in the Fine Arts at Lasalle College of the arts and his Bachelor of Business Marketing in University College Dublin. With more than 6 years of Mural painting experience, he is well versed in both interpersonal and creative skills. Luke currently works as the Vice director of Mural Lingo and is based in Singapore.

What is ARCHICRAFT?
The inaugural Archicraft in Archifest 2017 is a series of curated workshops, organized in carefully curated architectural space or buildings, that provides the opportunity for participants to delve into a variety of disciplines in society and their interaction with architecture. These series of workshops are aimed at empowering participants to adopt an active role in becoming 'agents for change' in our living environment.
There is a total of 8 workshops to choose from; from learning how 3D printing has impacted the practice of architecture to learning how to compose a thought-provoking architectural photograph or even to growing your very own personal ‘farm’.
