On the 23rd March, Singapore lost her founding father and first prime minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew. He was an amazing statesman, and one of the crucial persons who had brought Singapore to where she is today. But even more amazing is his undying and unfailing love for his late wife. I chanced upon a youtube video that featured their journey together and I could feel that warmth and comfortable familiarity and love they had for each other that when the shot cut to him giving her his last kiss during her funeral, I just broke down in tears and so, I was determined to illustrate portraits of Mr and Mrs Lee that celebrate their love for each other. She was his support, his pillar, and his live-long companion.
"Without her, I would have been a different man, with a different life" -Mr Lee Kuan Yew
To Mr & Mrs LKY, no words can possibly express my gratitude to both your contributions to me and to Singapore. R.I.P.
