Feature on Lim Tze Peng

Aug 12, 2008

zbNOW (p 4) featured artist Lim Tze Peng, who at the age of 88, is still exploring new ways of creating his art pieces. The Cultural Medallion recipient’s most recent works combine the essence of calligraphy and painting. zbNOW noted that one of Lim’s milestones was the donation of 200 pieces of his works by Mr and Mrs Koh Seow Chuan to SAM. The artist himself also donated about 100 pieces to SAM. Lim felt that besides donations from the artists themselves, corporate organisations should also purchase and collect paintings in support of the artists. The article noted that Lim will be holding an exhibition at the Art Retreat from 18 Aug – 4 Oct, followed by NTU from 15 Oct to 15 Dec.
