View of the Town (Europe)

Born in 1923, Lim Tze Peng is mainly a self-taught artist. Ink paintings and calligraphic works are predominantly featured in his work, though there is a small collection of early oils, watercolours and drawings. He created a unique style of ink painting using rich brush and tonal details, and this approach is often regarded as a manifestation of the Nanyang Style in the ink medium. He was awarded the Cultural Medallion in 2003.A tireless traveller, Lim often paints on his sojourns, returning home armed with many new works. ‘View of the Town (Europe)’ is an attempt at experimenting with stylization and flattened form.
