SINGAPORE: Former MediaCorp artiste Edmund Chen is on his way to break the record for the world's longest drawing by an individual.

He single-handedly completed a drawing that is 606 metres long – exceeding the previous record of 411 metres, held by a Mexican artist.

Chen began the feat on July 8, constructing an image every 10 minutes.

Guinness World Records will arrive in Singapore to finalise the record at the end of this month.

Chen said: "On the sixth day, we surpassed the world record, which is 411 metres. On (the) seventh day, we passed the Guinness World Records of 500 metres, so we completed three records -- the Singapore record, World Record and Guinness World records."

Chen added that he chose to end the drawing with a golden koi as it represents a symbol of unity, determination and the need to swim against the odds to succeed. - CNA/gn
