In a bid to raise awareness for tiger conservation in not just Singapore but around the world, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has turned to creative means to capture the public’s interest. They’ve launched the AR-mazing Tiger Trail that will see 33 life-sized tiger art sculptures around Singapore for you to spot from now until 9 April 2022.
33 life-sized sculptures by artists
A joint effort by not just local artists but also a host of international ones, the interactive trail hopes to deepen the public’s understanding of the issues facing tiger conservation. Featured artists include the local artist Ms Poppins and Yip Yew Chong, a Singaporean visual artist best known for his street murals which depict local life in a whimsical and nostalgic way.
Amongst the line up of international artists, you’ll spot works from Dave White, a contemporary British Artist who dedicates his work to celebrating popular culture and interpreting emotive issues, as well as Phannapast Taychamaythakool (Yoon), who is a Thai artist and illustrator who tells personal stories through drawings of animals and flowers.
Each tiger is a reflection of the unique art style and interpretations of each artist, and no two tigers are alike.
Trail maps around Singapore
The tiger sculptures can be spotted all over the island, including popular hotspots like Sentosa, Millenia Walk, Jewel Changi Airport, ION Orchard, National Gallery, and many more locations.
Here are the maps of where to find the tigers:
