Lim Tze Peng
Singapore River V

Ink on Paper
140 x 365cm


With the gradual urbanisation of Singapore that meant old buildings would be demolished and forever lost, Lim Tze Peng embarked on frequent painting expeditions to capture the scenes of 'Old Singapore.' Driving to locations such as Chinatown and Boat Quay, he would fastidiously paint every day - completing one painting in the morning and one in the evening. At a time which he describes as his most prolific period, he amassed an impressive collection of almost 500 paintings of these landmark scenes. It was when the buildings along the Singapore River and Chinatown were demolished in 1983, that his paintings of these familiar locations ceased as well.
