Profile

Lim Tze Peng 林子平

​Singapore

Lim Tze Peng, artist, winner of the Cultural Medallion in 2003. He is best known for the significant number of Chinese ink drawings and paintings of Chinatown and the Singapore River during the early 1980s when urban redevelopment focused on these two areas. Having a solid foundation in Chinese philosophy, art and culture, he also practised Chinese calligraphy.

 

His innovative expressions in his mastery of the Chinese ink and his development in calligraphy, particularly, his invention of 'HU TU ZI' 糊涂字 (muddled calligraphy) is impressive to behold.

国宝级艺术家林子平于2003年获得新加坡文化奖。80年初期,在城市重建的规划下,他因画了牛车水和新加坡河这个两个地区的大量水墨画作品而闻名。他在哲学、艺术与文化方面有着扎实的基础,尤其醉心于中国书法。

 

他在中国水墨画和书法方面建构起新的视觉表达形式,尤其是他的 「糊涂字」令人留下深刻的印象。
