Singapore has long been known as a business hub. A global transit point. Renowned for its food. But over the past decade, a new generation of emerging talent has redefined what it is to be Singaporean, pushing the boundaries of the state’s creative capital through a completely unique cultural viewpoint. Now, being Singaporean and creative are not mutually exclusive.

In partnership with innovative watchmaker Swatch, on these pages we explore, celebrate and rethink what it means to be inventive in Singapore by shining a spotlight on the artists, designers, performers and entrepreneurs bringing to the world ideas and artistry never seen before.
