JTMUSES-enamel mugs (set of 2)-Taxis of SG
During phase 2 of our new normal, my mentee – differently-abled artist, Douglas – had kept busy. I started him on Taxis of SG as he likes to draw vehicles. Do you remember the 70s when we used to hail “Taxi!” and share them with other commuters? Co-shared on mixed media is a collage of how our different ethnicities have shaped Singapore to Uniquely Singaporean and the taxi cabs of old. 1. 1949 – The First London-type Taxi in SG. We reproduced this from relevant images of old. An Austin 1949 model arrived in Singapore in November 1949 as the colony’s first-ever London-type taxi, causing quite a stir as pedestrians and passengers gazed at the vehicle with interest. Designed with a capacity to carry five passengers, the new taxi, however, was out of reach for most drivers due to its high cost of $7,000. 2. The first yellow top taxis were brought into Singapore in 1933 by the Wearne Brothers, founded in 1906. We researched it and tried to reproduce it here with its winged tips! 3. Toyota Corona Taxis – SBS Taxi- its colours mirror that of the SBS bus in the mid-eighties; re-interpreted from old photos The backdrop features a collage of how different ethnicities have made Singapore such a melting pot of surprising discoveries.
