NAS DAILY Singapore Office Wall Painting Murals
Nas Daily's Office Murals in Singapore was painted in 2019. The inspiration behind this first yellow wall painting was “unity” as “NAS means people”. The second painting was the Gall-Peters Projection of the world map.
Nas Daily has always had the principles of "people", "unity" and "empowerment" in mind. It is visible through his 1-minute daily videos which built him his brand and fame. Hence, the yellow wall in his conference room had this design: Multiple hands of different colours (representing different races of the world) pointing up at the text "Build Something". View the YouTube video here:
The design was inspired by multiple "women's empowerment art" showing united balls of fists of different cultures. We recreated it into pointing the number "one" because Nas Daily started out with one-minute videos.
The message behind the wall art that is now on the walls of Nas Daily's Office's Conference Room shows that, no matter who you are in the world, you have the ability to "Build Something."
Here's a fun not-so-secret: the 5th hand was a reference to Nas's hand. Because we were on whatsapp video when he pointed out the walls to me, and that was his exact hair hand pointing the walls to me.
Apart from that, the 4th hand is a tribute to my dear friend, Janani. She, who came to Kuching for a few years from Chennai, India, became one of my best and most supportive friends, who supported Artsy Daphy in the early years.
I've also added a little bit Sarawakian tree-of-life elements into the tattoo of the last hand because of love for our unique indigenous art.
Below shows the wall without painting. Picture on the right shows the overlay of my digital art sketch on the wall with measurements. This is how we normally plan out murals to ensure that the art fits the space's design & function.
Above shows the empty wall and the Gall-Peters Projection of the World map's digital sketch to scale on the wall with measurements. This projection shows the true size of countries compared to the regular projection we use, hence, it looks elongated.
Below shows the actual painting of the Galls-Peters World Map on Nas Daily's Office's Lounge area wall.
