Urban Sketchers Singapore


Directly facing Singapore’s seafront, the eastern neighbourhood of Katong has long inspired fierce pride and loyalty in its residents. Follow the artists from Urban Sketchers Singapore through the shophouse-lined streets of this former enclave of the Eurasian and Peranakan communities.

Marvel at the intricate details on each conserved shophouse, and the old-world charm of breezy terrace houses. Savour the mouth-watering cuisine, from the infamous Katong laksa, to kopi and kaya toast at Chin Mee Chin Confectionery, to fresh roasted chestnuts from a street vendor. Get a glimpse of Singapore’s past in the schools, religious sites and family-run businesses that have witnessed the sweeping tides of change over the years.

Capturing the neighbourhood by day and by night, We Love Katong is a timely volume that captures the area’s rich heritage, even as it welcomes new, modern establishments.
