The Singaporean artist spruces up the luxury hotel’s restaurant with watercolour paintings of everyday ingredients
What do food and flora have in common? Lots in fact, and you don’t even have to think too hard to find the connection. Restaurants with farm-to-fork menus are all the rage, focusing on edible gardens and sustainable and seasonal produce.
To further propel itself as a destination for holistic dining, Verde Kitchen at Hilton Singapore has recently collaborated with local artist Lucinda Law to display her illustrations.
Law is most known for her watercolour paintings and her focus on botanicals. You’ll find artwork of comprising ferns, leaves and fruit flowering on her Instagram page.
