Peter Draw wants to spread love around the world through a post-post modern art movement we’re embarking on with his caricature called Ai. As seen on the artist’s highly curated Instagram account, Ai has ventured to manifold cities, carefully illustrated into images taken by Peter’s partner photographers. And this week, we’ll be focusing on our very own Gardens by the Bay, as captured and told by Leslie Heng, a self-taught photographer. He enjoys telling visual stories through frames of interesting architectural backdrops. He is also known on Instagram as blackmobil.
What was your fondest memory that happened within the area you captured?
The first time I visited Gardens by the Bay was when I played tour guide to my overseas friend who visited Singapore. I literally felt like I was in the movie set of Avatar. The space was a perfect blend of architecture and nature.
And there’s just something magical about the place that keeps me wanting to go back. Even though I’ve visited Gardens by the Bay many times now, I still find it an enjoyable experience each time I’m there. I especially like watching the sky turn dark and the trees and architecture come alive though the spectacular display of lights.
Your least favourite bit about the area?
There is no least favourite bit.

Take a walk through the mystical Gardens by the Bay Cloud Forest. Catch the sunset by the Supertree Grove — be sure to choose a good spot for the light show too.
