The Dada Record: Justin Lee

The Dada Record: Justin Lee

Hi, my name is Justin Lee. I am a fine artist and graphic designer and my work has been recognized through commissions by the Singapore Art Museum, the Esplanade and the New Majestic Hotel. My art reflects a fine sense of contemporary design flavored with an essence of Singapore traditions. The themes in my work underscore familiar Asian cultures with a pop treatment that celebrates Asian values in an endearing tongue in cheek manner. I was awarded the Mont Blanc Young Artist World Patronage Project in Hamburg (Germany) in 2006, and scholarships to LASALLE and NAFA.

Last Breath performed by Ming Zhu Sisters
A remake of an old Hokkien song that brings back memories of “Gei Tai”- the seventh month singing performance. It gives the local audience a different perspective on Hokkien pop songs, especially to the younger generation.
