Five sculptures will be displayed on a 3D illustration swimming pool created by 2 Asian visual artists Ms Karen Pow & Mr Chao Harn Kae. The portrait of young Olympic athlete Lauren Perdue will be lying in the pool. A swimmer will be sitting on the board while another will be relaxing on the life buoy. On the other hand, a swimmer will be poised on a silver ball right next to the swimming pool.
The collaboration between the artists encourages cultural exchange between East and West. It develops a new form of street art creating three-dimensional optical illusion on a two-dimensional horizontal surface with the 3D sculptures perfectly fit into the 2D painting. It brings a touch of summer to the city and serves as an interactive street art that the audience can get involved and connected with their surroundings. The entire experience is breathtaking, realistic and at the same time captivating once the audience discover the correct viewing angle.
