There is perhaps no other artist who works as hard as Mr. Lim Tze Peng, widely known as Singapore's oldest artist. Lee will be unveiling fifty of his works in his latest solo exhibition titled From Then To Now: Capturing Life which will run from 11 October to 25 November 2022.
Guest-of-Honour, Mr Edwin Tong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth and Second Minister for Law, will grace the launch of the exhibition on 11 October to celebrate Lim Tze Peng's 50 exclusive works, unveiled for the first time in Ode to Art Gallery.
At his age, Lee continues to paint daily, bringing us scenes of Singapore's yesteryears using his favourite medium of ink and rice paper. Open to public from 12 October onwards, viewers are invited to immerse themselves in Lim Tze Peng's works, with highlights such as paintings that were painted in the 1970-1980s and newly-recoloured in the last two years, bringing his memories of Singapore's yesteryears to life and a stark reminder of how far the nation has come in a mere 57 years since its independence.
Other tales of Singapore through imageries of everyday scenes across the decades like Chinatown, Singapore River, old kampung life, and still life will be on display as well.
