Ode to Art in collaboration with Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum , IDF Singapore, and the Consulate-General of the Republic of Singapore presents ‘The Spirit of Ink’ by Singapore’s pioneer artist Lim Tze Peng.
At 99 years old, Lim Tze Peng is Singapore’s oldest living artist and one of the most respected Chinese calligraphy artists. Despite his age, creating art is ever on Lim’s mind, and he has been passionately producing a series of calligraphy works. ‘The Spirit of Ink’ is the artist Lim Tze Peng’s first ever solo exhibition in India.
The highlight of the exhibition will be Lim’s 5 new pieces of abstract art calligraphy that he painted over the course of 2018-2019. These large-scale paintings will be displayed in public for the very first time. From an expansive collection of his works, another 20 specially curated pieces have also been selected to depict Lim’s journey from his roots in traditional Chinese calligraphy to his current more abstract and contemporary works.
This year marks a significant milestone for Singapore, being the 200th anniversary of the founding of modern Singapore by Sir Stamford Raffles. The exhibition is part of an ongoing effort to encourage cultural exchange within South Asia and Southeast Asia, and is held in conjunction with the Singapore Bicentennial and National Day celebrations this year.
The exhibition is supported by DBS Bank and PSA International, Singapore's leading port operator.
