Adding to the energy of the races, nine monumental stainless steel sculptures that epitomize Romero Britto vibrant alphabet of imagery will be installed on Orchid Boulevard.
Collectors can find more of Romero Britto's artwork in the urban green rooms fronting ION Orchard as well as on exhibition at Opera Gallery in the same building.
Putting a unique spin on the activities, Britto will also create original works of art using ROC ART canvases provided by Formula 1 race car drivers, Lewis Hamilton and David Coulthard.
