EZ-Link Pte Ltd has teamed up to local Singaporean artist Lee Kow Fong, better known as Ah Guo, for two special edition cards which will be available on Friday, 30 July 2021.
The two special EZ-Link cards will feature two National Day designed which Ah Guo had illustrated last year. The illustrations are also in line with the theme for this year’s National Day, “Together, Our Singapore Spirit”.
Limited-edition National Day EZ-Link Cards with Ah Guo Designs
The two designs by Ah Guo are titled “A Vibrant Future” and “Higher We Go!”
“A Vibrant Future” shows children at play and reflects the artist’s hope for the next generation of Singaporeans to grow up with hope and optimism.
“Higher We Go!” captures the vibrant atmosphere during the National Day in August and includes an illustration of a young father lifting up his daughter, symbolising how Singapore can look to the future.
Art to Inspire
“I have always wanted to use my art as a means to inspire people, and help them stay calm and positive,” shared Ah Guo. “This is more important now than ever before as we battle through the pandemic, and I am heartened to be able to share my illustrations and bring joy to Singaporeans during this time.”
“As we celebrate the nation’s 56th birthday, we wanted to take this opportunity to spread some hope among Singaporeans and encourage them to stay strong and resilient,” Nicholas Lee, Chief Executive Officer, EZ-Link. “Ah Guo’s artistic values resonate with us, and we are pleased to partner with him to deliver small moments of inspiration in consumers’ everyday lives.”
The limited edition cards will be available on Friday, 30 July onwards, and will retail at S$15.60 (no load value) for a set of two on the EZ-Link Official Store on Shopee, while stocks last.
