A tribute to Mr lee Kuan Yew

For the pass few day's Singapore has been a quiet place as we mark our respect to our late founding father Mr lee Kuan Yew whom pass away on the 23rd March 2015 at 3.18am local timing at Singapore General Hospital. Now currently his body is lying in state at the parliament house singapore , 5 guards standing in-directly with him. The parliament is open to public to pay their last respect to Mr lee and i am very touch by the people whom are queuing to visit him and the people who provide food , drinks and shelter to those who are queuing and they got tired cause the queue got last about 8hr's straight. The crowd at there is a massive and this show's that Singaporean do care about our founding father. ( Mr Lee Kuan Yew) The picture below show's the queue and the amount of people queuing.

Another thing's that has also shown tribute to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew was an Artwork and sign's roaming around the social media this few day's. About the art work was about this Guy who drew Mr Lee face with 18000 words of Mr Lee Kuan Yew to form out a Face of him on a A3 size paper. The artist is Ong Yi Teck and he took 15 hr's to complete the artwork which he created and His work won't be sold. Another tribute was a Sign about Mr Lee in a Bow and with his face on it as a silhouette behind it. Artist name is Unknown but he/she is a very creative and innovative way to manipulate into a Sign. This actually show's that Singaporean are thought full and give their best to Mr Lee Kuan Yew. So I have decided to create an artwork with the Sign and manipulate it with thumbprint instate of just black bow. I did this artwork was because i would like to present it to Mr Lee as "He was the one whom given us the identity of who we are now". So i worked with my teacher's to create a artwork with thumbprint as a tribute to Mr Lee , my teacher's are very supportive and help me in many ways to get the thumbprint from the School. This is the artwork that i have manipulate it with the print's. The picture below is the final artwork that i have manage to create it within 12 hour's as tomorrow i will be visiting Mr Lee Kuan Yew with my School.

The Top picture is me with the artwork and the tribute board that is being place in our school to write to Mr Lee.

So today i have manage to collect 300 thumbprint from the Principle , teacher's , friends and student that visited our school for an event's. This was quite challenging as it's very hard to work with thumbprint as people tend to have different pressure when applying it to the work but it was a great out-come of the artwork and you can check out in my instagram : @IONIC_CONG or visit ITE College East. I would really like to thank everyone who contribute the prints and making this artwork a possible good turnout. And I would like to say a very BIG THANK YOU to Mr Lee Kuan Yew for everything you have done for us and giving us a identity of a country and a sense of belonging to Singapore. And this Coming Sunday would the state funeral and over on internet everyone is deciding on what to wear on Sunday it's either Black or white but what i say would be just wear with your heart on with be grateful already.
