About the artwork

In the 1980s, with the impending demolishment of old buildings along the banks of the Singapore River and Chinatown, Lim Tze Peng tirelessly documented the beautiful architecture and ways of life before they gradually disappeared - amassing a collection of almost 500 paintings of landmark scenes. These paintings are a testament to the cultural heritage of Singapore, by one of the true masters of ink.

About the artist

Born in Singapore in 1921, Lim Tze Peng is one of Singapore’s most significant artists and a living legend. Renowned for his Chinese ink creations of post-independence Singapore, he also practices Chinese calligraphy. Alongside local and international exhibitions, his masterpieces are exhibited in prominent Singapore institutions and part of many prestigious collections. Lim has been bestowed several awards including the Special Prize at the Commonwealth Art Exhibition in England in 1977 and the prestigious Cultural Medallion in Singapore in 2003. In May 2012, he broke records with the sale of his works at a Christies auction in Hong Kong.
