Abstract:
Lim Tze Peng (林子平) (b. 28 September 1921, Singapore–) is an artist, and a winner of the Cultural Medallion in 2003. Self-taught, Lim started painting in the 1950s when he was a teacher in Xin Min School. Having a strong foundation in Chinese philosophy, art and culture, Lim’s paintings are often deeply rooted in tradition, and yet exude a contemporary feel at the same time.
