Lim Cheng Hoe

Painting Singapore

Edited by Low Sze Wee

Lim Cheng Hoe stands out from most of Singapore’s first-generation artists in many regards. He grew up and was educated in Singapore, and is considered to be a self-taught artist in the watercolour tradition. This exhibition catalogue examines and compares Lim’s work with Chinese ink artist Chen Chong Swee, and seeks to explore the man beyond his art through his diary entries. It also republishes essays from previous Lim Cheng Hoe exhibition catalogues which are now out of print, and serves as a comprehensive resource of research around this significant Singapore artist.
