Unveiled in 1981 as Singapore’s national flower, the Vanda Miss Joaquim was chosen for its resilience and year-round blooming quality. It is also a symbol of Singapore’s multicultural heritage.

This is my take on the orchid, and I chose a vibrant colour palette to symbolise the confluence of ethnicity, beliefs, gender, culture and all things diverse in Singapore, and the country’s never ending efforts in striving to achieve a balance and embrace the beauty in diversity.

About the ‘Not Just a Little Red Dot’ collection

When someone mentions 'Singapore', what comes to mind? Despite its small land footprint, Singapore has transformed into one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities. Over the years, iconic symbols and landmarks were created to represent Singapore in the world.

Created in Kelly's signature contemporary style, each artwork in the ‘Not Just a Little Red Dot’ collection is inspired by a national symbol or landmark in Singapore's history. The year when the symbol/landmark was created/completed or the name of the location is 'stamped' on the artwork, marking its significance.
