Workshops and Events > Past Exhibitions Tze Peng in Bali

Lim Tze Peng, Singaporean and 2003 Cultural Medallion recipient is renowned for his ink paintings of local and Southeast Asian landscapes. Despite his chosen career as an educator, he remained dedicated to painting and participated in numerous field trips to remote parts of Southeast Asia in the 60s and 70s. In the 80s in particular, he visited Bali most intensely, continuing his occasional sojourns till the 1990s. During his time there, Tze Peng produced a staggering collection of more than 500 sketches, oil and ink paintings on Bali alone. Over 50 works were specially selected for his 10th solo exhibition at NAFA that unravel a visual and sumptuous tapestry bound up in the fabled beauty of Bali. One of his major works include the majestic volcano of the Kintamani region in Bali which spans over 4 metres in length. The exhibition opening was officiated by Senior Advisor of The National Art Gallery Singapore, Mr. Kwok Kian Chow on 25 April 2012. The evening was marked by the donation of a painting by the artist to NAFA, featuring the mysterious Goa Gajah, or elephant cave.
