Warren painted the five Changi Murals, named Nativity, Ascension, Crucifixion, Last Supper, and St. Luke in Prison, to help lift the moods of ill prisoners, as Warren himself suffered from renal disorder and dysentery while interred. Besides the murals, the Changi Museum and Chapel also houses many artifacts, photographs and letters that speak of the conditions suffered by Allied POWs in the Japanese-run internment camps. The original murals still exist, but access to the chapel is restricted, as it’s now a part of the Ministry of Defence Changi Airbase Camp.

The Restoration of the Changi Murals After the war ended, the murals were distempered over and forgotten, until their rediscovery in 1958. After a year of searching, Warren was discovered to be the original artist, and he was persuaded to assist in restoring the murals that had faded over time. He returned to Singapore three times in the 1960s and was able to fully restore four of the five murals before his advanced age prevented him from continuing.
