Life is tricky baby, stay in your magic!

International artist Mishell Leong is collaborating with Big Blue Trunk to showcase her bold, vibrant use of colours in life size proportions for the first time in Singapore. Mishell will create a unique wall installation featuring the multi-faceted and diverse application of the world renowned Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® products, with the theme of “bold, strong, feminine”. 

The wall installation will feature right in the storefront of Big Blue Trunk’s new shop at Cluny Court (unit 02-14), Singapore bringing a unique and colourful vibe to the Big Blue Trunk experience. Deepti, the Founder of Big Blue Trunk will bring her expertise of using Annie Sloan products to create a range of beautiful finishes on the mural. The project will begin from 25th September until 1st October 2020 – just in time for the new store’s opening scheduled for 2nd October 2020.  

Mishell, a life expressionist and self-taught artist, is known for her bold use of colours and textures. She believes she is liberated from the constraints of traditional techniques and preconceptions of what and how art should be. Her simple brushstrokes have created diverse collections including Happiness, Botanicals, Watercolours and Sensual Art. The opening night of Mishell’s recent solo exhibition at the Royal Plaza on Scotts, was sold out with a long waitlist, patronised by art collectors from around the world. 

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
– C.S. Lewis.

Mishell and Deepti are both passionate about women empowerment and conceptualised this wall mural to reflect their love for everything bold, vibrant, strong and free. Trained by Annie Sloan herself, Deepti is the Founder of Big Blue Trunk and specialises in transforming furniture and spaces with decorative painting techniques. A stand-out feature of the new retail experience, this mural brings to life Big Blue Trunk’s mission of Make Everyday Beautiful.  

“To be able to take my work to such a scale with Deepti is a real honour. I have always been a fan of Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint® and Annie Sloan herself is such an inspiration for me – so this is a real privilege. I cannot wait to see the colours come to life on the wall.” - Mishell

“Creating a life-size wall mural using our products has been a dream of mine, and I’m delighted that we are bringing it to life with Mishell, whose work we love and admire. Featuring a diverse range of painting techniques, the mural will be bold and vibrant, with our favourite message - Life is tricky baby, stay in your magic! A one-of-a-kind installation in Singapore, we can’t wait for our customers to discover a whole new retail experience at Big Blue Trunk!” - Deepti

We will share our creative journey on social media or you can stop by 02-14 at Cluny Court to say hi! (Don’t forget to bring us coffee or champagne!)
