The best way to deal with this pandemic that limits mobility is to work. This is what underlies two cross-country artists, namely Stereoflow from Jakarta and ZERO from Singapore.

The two of them collaborated to create cool murals in two places at once, namely Jakarta and Singapore. Stereoflow said that this long-distance project was fun because they both knew and understood each other’s mural style.

“This mural is a collaboration with ZERO remotely. It all started with each of us and we responded to each other, he was like a good friend and we got along right away,” said Stereoflow.

ZERO, who is an artist from Singapore, is also enthusiastic about welcoming this collaboration, even though they are far apart.

“When I found out that I was going to collaborate with Stereoflow, I was immediately enthusiastic and contacted him and discussed what we were going to do,” added ZERO.

These two interconnected murals in different places are inspired by the chaos during the pandemic. Titled Under The Same Sun, this colorful work of art explains that even though everyone is far apart, they are still close to each other because they are still under the same sun.

“So we can be like under the same sky, that’s why we took the title and theme of this mural under the name Under the Same Sun. This is because we are facing the same global problem,” ZERO continued.

Furthermore, Stereoflow also believes that this mural is a reminder that all those who are experiencing this global problem can still unite, because they are still under the same sun.

“Even though we are still separated by this pandemic, we are still under the same sun,” added Stereoflow.

A pandemic that paralyzes all sectors from health to the economy often makes people feel hopeless. Through this Under the Same Sun mural, the two artists hope that it can be a message to strengthen each other.

“We decided to make a mural that is more colorful and bright, so that it has a positive meaning as well as represents a vision to move forward. That’s the reason I created a character who seemed to imagine that he was doing time traveling and meeting relatives abroad. This work is like a portal or gateway to one’s thoughts,” ZERO said.

4. Become a New Tourist Destination when the Pandemic Ends

The Under the Same Sun mural has been completed in Kampong Gelam Singapore and M-Bloc Jakarta. Even though they are separated, these two murals still have a connection with each other!

This is directly proportional to the spirit that the two artists, namely Stereoflow and ZERO, want to convey. They hope that this mural will be a message to strengthen each other during the pandemic. The choice of place is also adjusted to locations that have certain sentimental values, both in Singapore and Jakarta.

“M Bloc’s architecture has something unique, when the mural is finished and side by side with other works, it makes the atmosphere even more artistic,” said Stereoflow.

As a citizen of Singapore, ZERO has a sentimental value to the place he chose to represent this work.

“In the early 2000s, Kampong Gelam looked deserted, different from now. This place is now a tourist destination as well as a means of art exploration for young people in Singapore,” ZERO continued.

With this deep message, of course, this mural will become an attractive tourist destination when the pandemic is over, especially when visiting Singapore. But be patient, Sahabat Dream, stay healthy and hope that the situation will recover and you can visit Singapore soon to see this cool mural.
