Lim Tze Peng (b. 28 September 1923, Singapore -), artist, winner of the Cultural Medallion in 2003, first established his art practice in the early 1950s with a series of oil paintings on Chinese junks. He is best known for the significant number of Chinese ink drawings and paintings of Chinatown and the Singapore River he produced during the early 1980s when urban redevelopment focused on these two areas. Having a solid foundation in Chinese philosophy, art and culture, Lim also practised Chinese calligraphy, especially in the 1990s.

For his contributions to art, Lim has received several awards including the Cultural Medallion in 2003.

About Lim Tze Peng

Mr Lim Tze Peng was born in Singapore in 1923. Largely self-taught, Tze Peng drew from the available traditions evident at the birth of Singapore’s artistic scene in the 30s and 40s. Even though Lim was born and educated in Singapore, his diligent studies and daily dedication to practising his craft enabled him to excel in the Chinese ink tradition.
