River of Life
Ink on rice paper, 104 x 106 cm
Lim Tze Peng (b. Singapore, 1921) is one of Singapore’s most significant artists and has a solid foundation in Chinese philosophy, art and culture. He has made Singapore River his own, bold and strong. As our nation modernised, he diligently captured these vanishing landscapes before they disappeared completely. All his lines are derived from his dynamic calligraphy art, a heritage of which he is rightly proud and happy to share with others.
