Read more about the Artist’s Inspiration behind “Pisang Goreng”:
“Pisang Goreng” is Malay for fried banana. Over the years, that I’ve been living here in Singapore, I’ve gone on a few road trips into Malaysia. One of the fun things that we like to do is to pull over on the roadside at one of the Pisang Goreng stands for a quick fried banana snack. While these kinds of pop-up stands are not as common in Singapore, this is still a well known dessert here.
Talking about bananas, I love the way these are displayed in Southeast Asia, handing in rows on hooks like these. This artwork captures fun and quirky everyday scenes. This menu is photographed from a signboard at a food court. Here you’ll see the many ways that Prata can be served – egg prata, cheese prata & of course banana prata. The batik chicken cutouts refer to the laid-back lifestyle that you would find in the kampong. A time, not so long ago, in Singapore where chickens were found running around the village. Behind the chicken here, I’ve enlarged a motif taken from a traditional batik shirt. Textures from the ridges in banana leaves are repeated in the background layers up at the top.
