Lim Cheng Hoe: Painting Singapore


Edited by Low Sze Wee

Published with National Gallery Singapore

Lim Cheng Hoe stands apart from most of Singapore’s first-generation artists in many regards. He
grew up and was educated in Singapore, and is considered a self-taught artist in the watercolour
tradition. His ardour and discipline as a painter merge in his evocative portrayals of light and life in
Singapore. In this catalogue, an anthology of out-of-print writings cast the existing body of
scholarship on Lim into relief, while newly commissioned essays illumine his practice as a largely self-
taught plein-air painter.
