Triologie’s BrArt piece is a kaleidoscope of stories of our heroines in Singapore represented by an amalgamation of culture, place of interest (Katong), a favourite delicacy (Kuihs) and our childhood game (five stones). Each print story is carefully adorned resulting in a showcase of Singapore as well as a celebration of Singapore women.
