These six street scenes in watercolour are illustrations from the picture book Go Trishaw Go by
Francis Wong Hooe Wai. Set in the 1960s, this book tells the story of a boy hot on the heels of his run-away teddy bear. The boy, Wei, riding in Uncle Zhong’s trishaw, moved through many nostalgic scenes of bustling Chinatown, with its unique blend of architecture originated from different cultures.
Simultaneously an architect, a writer, and an illustrator, Francis grew up in Chinatown, Singapore and read architecture at Cambridge University, United Kingdom.
