A tribute to a Filipina Artist

Click to view larger image

The first time I came across the name “Pacita Abad” was from a Singapore brochure. Since then I wanted to see the bridge that she painted and although I know that it is somewhere near Clarke Quay, I never found it till now.

Pacita Abad is a Filipina modern painter. From her website I’ve learned that she has painted 3500 artworks including this bridge. The Alkaff Bridge is a 55m bridge that crosses Singapore River. Pacita painted this bridge last January, 2004, after she had undergone treatment for cancer.

When I stayed in Fraser Place for 3 weeks in August, my balcony faced this bridge. Thanks for the memories raymond. :)
