Singapore River is an iconic painting of the Singapore River with its signature bum boats.
The Story of the Singapore River
The Singapore River has an important place in Singapore's history. It was the lifeline of Singapore for almost 200 years.
The mouth of the Singapore River was the old Port of Singapore, which was the centre of trade and commerce, from where Singapore grew and developed.
The Singapore River is 3.2km long, from its mouth at Kim Seng Bridge to Marina Bay.
The Story of the Painting
Well known Singapore artist Low Hai Hong experimented painting oil on paper and loved the effects. Painting oil on paper meant he could leave white spaces, similar to Chinese ink painting and even watercolour painting.
In this painting, the skyline is reduced to one tall building accompanied with plenty of white space, focusing our attention to the bum boats floating serenely on the calm and clean waters of the Singapore River.

This is Home, truly
Where I know I must be
Where my dreams wait for me
Where that river always flows
This is Home, surely
As my senses tell me
This is where I won't be alone
For this is where I know its Home
