Jalan Besar Gangster Kitties
Jalan Besar is a random mix of neighbourly friendliness and midnight seediness. Mixed in between hardware stores and harmless grocers are Karaoke pubs and night clubs featuring a cacophony of characters that makes this area the perfect setting for a gangster film. A tribute to this raw unpretentious neighbourhood, our artwork features two resident
strays wearing welding goggles, hugging a bottle of whisky and a beer can with scars and injuries gained from their tumbles in the street.
Drawn in the style of Maneki-neko to bring people good luck and wealth, the pair carry scrolls that translate to “It’s never too old to learn” because a life without wisdom is a life lived poorly.
