Last night Sydney Chic attended the launch of Tiger Beer's Works of Art launch party. Many of us arrived in style...in a Tuk Tuk.
There was plenty of beer flowing and authentic Singaporean Street Food with some great entertainment, including the fabulous Chris Hawker, pictured below.
Tiger Beer has partnered with curator James Dive, to transport barely-cooled woks from the streets of Singapore and transform them into ‘Woks of Art’ in bars across Sydney. The idea behind the artwork is to change people's perception that Singapore’s culture is clinical, polished and strict. Select artists were given real woks collected from the hawker markets and back laneways of the city, to use as canvasses for unique, vibrant artworks. Woks of Art celebrates Singapore’s energetic and vivid streets and showcases the true dynamic ethos of the birthplace of Tiger Beer.
Purposely repurposed from their usual home of bustling hawker centres, blazing flames and bursting flavours, each wok has a unique story to tell.
The dazzling ‘Woks of Art’ collection is now on display for everyone to discover, across five popular bars in Sydney; Surly’s, Soda Factory, Royal Albert Hotel, Earl’s Juke Joint and The Village Inn, until the end of March.
ABOUT TIGER BEER
Born in Singapore and raised on the streets, Tiger Beer is known for its full-bodied and refreshing taste with a bite. Since 1932 at the Alexandra Road brewery where there was no refrigeration, Tropical Lagering was created to withstand the humidity of Singapore and the heat of its spicy street food, keeping the clean and crisp beer fresher for longer.
