About the Speakers:

 

A’shua Imran, Founder and Artistic Director of Mural Lingo

Currently, Imran is the founder and artistic director of Mural Lingo, a Singapore-registered social enterprise engaged in the arts, education and publishing. He founded the independent platform in 2014 with the primary focus on offering an incubation space where undergraduates and recent graduates can develop their skills and sustain their art practice.

Over the past years, Imran has collaborated with and completed commissions for organisations and institutions such as Google, National University Singapore, Red Cross - Singapore, World Wildlife Fund - Singapore and more. He also participated in a 10 weeks artist-in-residence programme in 2017 at Johannesburg, South Africa. He is currently based in Singapore and actively involved in local and international projects as an independent artist and art director.

 

Muhammad Yusri Bin Mohd Yusoff, in-charge of Project Management

Yusri Yusoff graduated with a Bachelor in Arts Management at Lasalle College of the Arts and is part of a 2 piece acoustic band. In 2017, Yusri was part of the team that organised ARTWALK Little India, where he contributed designs and marketing strategies, programming for community engagement activities and assisted with the operations.

At Mural Lingo, Yusri is in charge of project management as well as photographic documentation of the projects. He was involved in the Google project, Tanjong Goodman Social Painting, Ice Cream Sundays and many more.

 

Carolyn Teo, Communication Strategist of Mural Lingo

She is the Communication Strategist of Mural Lingo, spearheading the internal and external communications of the enterprise. She works closely with the crew to streamline day-to-day operations by developing strategies to improve our efficiency.

As the voice of our social media platform, she works closely with our media artists to narrate the visual and written content of Mural Lingo. To Carol, a completed painting brings the same amount of joy and satisfaction as completing a written piece of work.

 

Marianne Tan, Co-founder of ArtWalk Singapore

Throughout her education and career, Marianne (@marihadalittlesheep) has explored a diversity of art forms from visual arts to music, dance and theatre. In 2018, Marianne participated in Singapore Art Week as the visual arts programmer for ARTWALK Little India, being the principal liaison between the artists and stakeholders - Singapore Tourism Board, National Arts Council, LASALLE college of the Arts and Little India Shopkeepers Heritage Association (LISHA).

Over the past years, she has executed a variety of self-initiated community art projects for organisations such as Very Special Arts Singapore and spearheaded CSR mural projects for corporates and NGOs like Temasek Holdings, DBS, Singapore Pools, World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and many others. Apart from her management roles, she is also experienced in providing photography, videography and content development support for local tour companies. 

Even before pursuing an education and career in the arts, Marianne has displayed an interest in finding out more about street art and hearing the authentic voices of the local street art practitioners. Co-founding Artwalk Singapore has given her the opportunity to delve deeper into the art form through tour curation and research.
