Known for their whimsical drawings in soft colours, popular local illustrator JangandFox‘s works often showcase the simple joys in life. Commissioned by the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC), JangandFox creates a brand-new series that showcases Chinese Singaporean culture through the heart-warming encounters of Little Otter and his friends around Singapore.

 

From 13 October 2020, members of the public can visit SCCC’s website, or follow SCCC’s Facebook page to enjoy 60 vibrant sketches, available in both English and Chinese, that are based on ten key family values featured at the SCCC’s permanent exhibition SINGAPO人: Discovering Chinese Singaporean Culture. These ten values are: loyalty , filial piety , kindness , love , courtesy , righteousness , honesty , shame , thrift and perseverance . Whilst many of these values are universal, the Chinese community has, over the years, come to treasure and pass them down through the generations in various ways such as popular Chinese tales like Kong Rong that promotes considerate behaviour, and festivals like Qing Ming where filial piety takes centrestage.

 

These sketches will be uploaded progressively on a weekly basis. Check back this webpage for more or visit the family-friendly #SINGAPO人 exhibition at the centre to find out more about these values.
