Artist Speaks

Lim Cheng Hoe

One of Singapore's most prominent watercolour artists, Lim Cheng Hoe devoted his life and practice to painting his country, weaving scenes that resonate with evanescent beauty. The reticent artist's personal writings speak of a man's quiet, fervent dedication to his art and his family. A selection of these writings are featured in this book, the second in "The Artist Speaks" series, along with Lim's paintings. "The Artist Speaks" series presents an intimate look at artists through their words and works, tracing the ideas, influences and experiences as told by artists themselves that constitute a vision.
