This is a headshot photograph of Lim Tze Peng, recipient of the Cultural Medallion in 2003. He first established his art practice in the early 1950s with a series of oil painting on Chinese junks. He is best known for the significant number of Chinese ink drawings and paintings of Chinatown and the Singapore River he produced during the early 1980s when urban redevelopment focused on these two areas. Having a solid foundation in Chinese philosophy, art and culture, Tze Peng also practised Chinese calligraphy, especially in the 1990s. Title devised by Library staff.
