Lim Tze Peng
Bumboats in the Harbour

Ink and Pigment on Paper
120 x 240cm


This work by Lim Tze Peng depicts a scene of the Singapore River, which is bustling with activity and energy. Four bumboats are docked beside the harbour, with the goods they delivered being brought to the shophouses that line the sides of the river. Lim uses bold brushstrokes in this work, that clearly define the forms of the boats, shophouses, as well as the rippling of the water. The earth toned colours used in this work are warm and inviting, and reflect the rustic subject depicted. Lim captures the sights and details of old Singapore and conveys the atmosphere with the exquisite skill that has made him a prolific Singaporean artist and a living legend.
