Lim’s work is diverse and experimental at times, and he is proficient in the use of bronze, steel, collage work and mixed media in his artworks.
The idea of applying western ideals within the oriental context is reflected in his sculptures where he applies modern art theories and techniques of colours and forms, onto Singapore subject matters like the portrayal of the nuclear family.
