About the artwork

Lim Tze Peng uses the approach of a Western oil method, however, instead of painting in oil he uses traditional Chinese ink. In so doing, he has created a unique style for himself. Lim Tze Peng grew up in a kampong in Pasir Ris, and one can see the fondness that he possesses for the simple village life. The piece gives off a calming, rhythmic feeling – showcasing kampongs on stilts by the waterfront that welcome mooring boats.
