Last month saw the first part of the Off The Rails event here in Singapore, a great display of music, food, and, of course, some mad painting across the walls of the infamous Railway Corridor near Buona Vista.
“We’re going Off The Rails Again! with a vibin’, family-friendly and interactive urban party! Artists from across the region bring a heavy dose of live art to the Corridor while psychedelic, reggae and jungle sounds rock the dancefloor. Grit meets glam as Zentai art and tie-dye create an unexpected fashion experience.”
The last event was absolutely off the hook, and more akin to something I’d see in Melbourne or NYC than I’ve expected to see in SG – but then, this is SG 2015, and things have changed here even from just a few years ago – the underground scene is starting to kick! Off The Rails had a really big turn out, and it was a grand adventure of art, music and all the finer things in life. Check out the video from the last one just to see what I mean …
See what I mean? Totally grand. Check out all the info on the artists and how to get there after the flyer (And yeah, I’m painting at this one – can’t fkn wait!!).
