Ink on Rice Paper
67 x 67cm


Ally-Singaporean artist Lim Tze Peng was dedicated to documenting scenes of old Singapore, during a period in which the country was beginning to rapidly modernise, in order to capture such memories before they were gone forever. In this work Lim depicts a bustling street with patrons of eateries enjoying their meals. The bold and confident lines that Lim uses articulate the defined forms of the architecture, tarpaulin and people, presenting this scene with stark clarity through the contrast produced by the black ink on white background. Lim’s nuanced use of negative space creates a sense of nostalgia, reflective of such a bygone area in Singapore’s history. His technical mastery and the powerful visual experience produced speaks for Lim’s artistic skill, and that has made him Singapore’s living artistic legends.
