Exhibitions

Ode to Art Presents Lim Tze Peng
Lim Tze Peng
Ode To Art is delighted to present the solo exhibition of veteran artist Lim Tze Peng titled Impressions. It will be a celebration of the bold calligraphy paintings of Lim Tze Peng that exude immense passion, strength and vitality. A special selection of 95 works is showcased in honour of the Cultural Medallion awardee and Singapore's oldest living second-generation artist who turns 95 this year. Lim Tze Peng achieved a stylistic breakthrough with the development of a new style of abstract calligraphy or 糊涂字 (known as hu tu zi). Emphasizing expressiveness and elegance of strokes instead of the actual meaning of the words, some of the works have layers written atop each other with words appearing so cursive and abstract that it is difficult to decipher the characters present.Ode To Art cordially invites you to join us on a historic evening as we celebrate Lim Tze Peng's 95th birthday and his works that have been enshrined in the Singapore art scene.
