The popular and inspirational Tian Tian Xiang Shang 天天向上 (TTXS) exhibition promises to be an exciting cross-sector and multi-disciplinary display of art and creativity held at Raffles City. 

To literally mean ‘looking up every day’, TTXS was created in the 1970s by Danny Yung, the co-artistic director and founding member of Zuni Icosahedron, and one of the most influential artist and cultural figures in Hong Kong and greater Asia who has been recognised internationally for his lifetime contribution to the arts and cultural exchanges.

With over a thousand Tian Tian figurines of varying sizes displayed around the mall at level 1, look out for the 40-over figurines designed by leading Singaporean artists and cultural figures such as Eric Khoo, Alfian Sa’at, T’ang Quartet, Kok Heng Leun, Boo Junfeng and Yuni Hadi. Well-known local personalities such as Daniel Yun, Ang Peng Siong, Jeanette Aw and Joanne Peh are represented too, as are the young artists from The Art Faculty (by Pathlight School).

This Singapore collection will be displayed alongside another 50 over pieces of Tian Tian figurines designed by international artists from countries including Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan and North America. Three larger-than-life Tian Tian figurines towering at more than 3 metres each, will also anchor the exhibition at various entrances of Raffles City. 

For over a decade, the TTXS project has travelled to and has been represented in major cities like Tokyo, Seoul, Milan, Vancouver and Paris, to name a few. It has also been invited to prominent cultural institutions and events around the world such as the TODAY ART MUSEUM – Beijing, Museum of Contemporary Art – Shanghai, and the world-famous Smithsonian Folklife Festival – Washington DC.


As part of the exhibition, a TTXS creative workshop was held for almost 1,000 young Singaporean students across the island. The TTXS workshops were specially curated and developed to encourage creativity, critical thinking and openness amongst the children to enable them to better express their thoughts, ideas and emotions. Each student designed a petite 12cm version of the Tian Tian figurine, which will also be displayed in tandem with those designed by the international guest artists at the exhibition.
