Trishaw Rider
46 Min

By CNA Published: 26 Apr 2020 Audio: English

Lai Foong Moi painted the Trishaw Rider in 1961. It is more than a portrait of everyday life in Singapore. Depicted at a moment of rest and playing a nose flute, the artist pushes one to think about the labourer beyond his profession. What are his hopes and aspirations ? What was life like for working-class Singaporeans in the 1960s and 1970s ?
