Residents in Jurong West will be living and breathing art - literally. The void deck of a Housing Board flat in Jurong West St 73 has been transformed into an art gallery featuring more than 50 artworks done in a style inspired by Pablo Picasso.

Dr Amy Khor, Mayor of South West District, visited the recently completed Void Deck "Art Gallery" in Jurong West on Sunday.

The gallery was put together by DBS Bank, Hong Kah North Community Arts and Culture Club, non-profit arts enterprise Social Creatives and South West Community Development Council.

More than 600 people, ranging from students to teachers and residents, were involved in the creation of the art pieces which depict Singapore's culture and history over the past 50 years.
