Yes this will sound like trolling, but there seems very little art of any kind in Singapore. Probably because the government has never encouraged it and many of its policies discourage creativity and original thought. On the other hand, pursuit of money, food and frivolous internet entertainment keeps everyone's attention focused elsewhere.
I not troll/wacko/spammer.

Not trolling at all, you’re absolutely right. The government has made its focuses clear- the lack of funding for the arts tells you all you need to know.

Look for local artists at galleries, art shows, cafes, online marketplaces, and artist guilds. Follow them on social media for updates.

I've also found garage sales to be a good way to find hidden gems. These are rare but rewarding. Carousell is also a great option.
