A Garden Mural in Chinatown!

commissioning a Garden Mural to add colour and flowers all year round. This year, Remixed is seeking a mural artist and needs your
input. View the artists' proposals and vote for your favourite at the Shanghai Restaurant anytime during the festival. The winning artist
will paint the mural on the East-facing wall of the Royal Treasure Restaurant in June.

Paintings, photographs and sculpture add a new dimension to Chinatown for the month. This artistic mash-up of culture, art and food
promises something for every taste. Come out and experience Chinatown like never before.
