Foliage becomes an unlikely canvas for art in one of the highlights of the upcoming Singapore Night Festival.

French artist-photographer Clement Briend will project images of Asian deities onto the trees outside the National Museum of Singapore, forming beautiful, haunting 3D-like images against the night sky. The 32-year-old behind the work, Divine Trees, was in town for the festival's press preview on Tuesday evening.

The popular Night Festival, to be held for two weekends at the end of August, will once again see the Bras Basah-Bugis arts and heritage district buzzing with free, open-air and indoor installations and performances.

Now in its seventh edition, the festival drew over 400,000 people last year.
