Second marine conservation themed mural completed at Bishan

Earlier this year in June, Guardians of the S.E.A.A. (formerly known as S.E.A. Aquarium Society) completed our first wall mural in Toa Payoh as part of our efforts to raise marine conservation awareness in the heartlands.

Our first community wall mural at Block 192 Toa Payoh Lorong 4

Five months later on 3 November, a second wall mural was completed. This time in the bustling neighbourhood of Bishan.

This project is a collaboration between the People’s Association, Bishan East-Thomson Community Arts and Culture Club, local artist Dan Wong of A Good Citizen and 14 students from the Art Elective Programme at CHIJ Secondary (Toa Payoh).

Dan briefing the students before they got to work.
Dan spent a day sketching the mural before the students proceeded to paint it.

Located within Bishan Bus Interchange, right outside Exit D of the adjoining Bishan MRT Station, this colourful wall mural showcases the vibrant underwater world, alongside the worrying issue of marine pollution. It aims to bring to attention the importance of reducing marine trash so as to keep the oceans healthy, and ultimately improve the health of planet Earth and all its inhabitants.

Putting the finishing touches. It took the team 3 days to complete the mural.

Here’s the masterpiece in its full glory.

Mission completed!
