William Sim, illustrator of the above picture, is a NAFA alumnus

BTWeekend invited artist William Sim to kick off their colouring series with an exclusive illustration which captures his favourite memories of Tiong Bahru. He comes to Tiong Bahru often to chill out at the cafes, or to check out the book stores. For this illustration, he has drawn the signature conservation flats, and a dancing sculpture. He’s also added heritage elements including gem biscuits, an ice kachang machine and a tingkat. The fish is one of his favourite subjects to draw, while the robot is a metaphor for himself.

NAFA graduate William Sim is a partner at a visual arts studio, Amphibios. He has showcased his paintings in various group and solo exhibitions, in Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Mr Sim is also the illustrator of four books “Colouring the Lion City”, “Colouring the World”, “Colouring Chinoiserie” and “Botanical Singapore”.
