Untitled: a love letter for everyone, from anyone. Mural Art, Wanderlust Hotel  (2018)
“Tucked in the back alley of Wanderlust Hotel, Untitled is a love letter for everyone, from anyone. Marigold, often picked for garlands and weddings as love charms in the Indian culture, is believed to have superstitious powers, of ceasing gossips and promoting cheerful conversations. It also symbolizes celebration, passion and creativity. Our mural adopts the aesthetic of a digital window with an email opener of Dear and closing of Love, so as to invite viewers to fill in the blank. When words are lost, the language of flowers can express love, hopes and dreams through their grace and beauty alone.”

FM 104.5 MHz. Sound & Visual Installation, Namwon Sound Art Residency (2017)
“In our exploration with sound, we found that it is a sibling of light, where they both move in vibrations and have their personalities based on frequencies. We abstracted images of Namwon into moving colors and played it to Namwon’s Classic Channel FM 104.5 MHz. The sequence and composition of colors that surround us in our environment and the songs on the radio channel, are out of our control. Sometimes we wonder, how are they tuning our consciousness?”

We first came across Sobandwine when they created murals for Nesuoto Café, Lunar Coffee Brewers, Hustle Co and ARTWALK Little India 2018. Earlier this month, Dominic Khoo and Leow Wei Li, the art duo behind Sobandwine, updated their portfolio with a mural made on the walls of the Wanderlust Hotel.

Trained in music (Dominic) and painting (Wei Li) the duo works with sound, paint and technology “to enhance and heighten experiences of meaningful looking or/and listening through their art”.
