In honour of Mr Lee Kuan Yew
Paintings by Sukeshi Sondhi
Of the many available images of Mr Lee Kuan Yew throughout the decades, Sondhi portrays a youthful image of him from the 1960s, one she calls "Man on a Mission."
"The expression on Mr Lee's face conveys the idea that he is going to conquer the world and put us on a map...he looks regal and charismatic"
Like Warhol's depiction of famous figures such as Marilyn Monroe and John Lenon, Sondhi repeats this one image several times using different canvases to emphasise Mr Lee Kuan Yew's iconic status.
