Colorfully Stenciled Garden at Singapore Art Museum


Japanese artist Shinji Ohmaki just sent us these photos of his latest installation at the Singapore Art Museum. Known for bringing bare white rooms to life with his use of pigments and stencils, Ohmaki worked with a team, over the course of 10 days, to create this colorful wonderland. Called Echoes-Infinity-The Forest, the installation opened on May 18 and is being exhibited until August 12. These images were taken before the opening or before children were invited to walk over the pigment flowers. As they fade and blur, Ohmaki hopes it reminds us about the transient nature of life.

If you’re curious about how this was created, watch the timelapse below.

Using a variety of denominations, Tanu creates intricate structures that range in shape and size. Often, he’ll first build a strong base using staggered coins.
