Located in Chaotianmen Square at the intersection of the Yangtze River and the Jialing River, Raffles City Shopping Center invited ten renowned artists to present this gift to the mountain city with humanity and artistry and to build a model of commercial art with city characteristics jointly. In the atrium, two bespoke illustration works by Jayde Fish, a designer and illustrator from California and HEDOF (of Rick Berkelmans) from the Netherlands are provided. These works have combined the local cultural elements of Chongqing including camellia, roc, the Two-River Culture, and three-dimensional city, to create a commercial space with artistic imagination.
