Quan Zhao Lim

Quan Zhao Lim (b. 1996) is an artist whose paintings provide a nuanced perspective on the interplay between personal and familial narratives, exploring the intricacies of memory and cultural identity. Drawing inspiration from personal recollections, imaginative elements, and references from art history, he creates abstract narratives that unfold within familiar settings, evoking a sense of the uncanny. By blurring the boundary between the figurative and the abstract, he captures the ever-evolving nature of perception, playing with our tendency to find familiar forms in ambiguous shapes. Rather than aiming for a single, fixed interpretation, the artist deliberately crafts his paintings to encourage a range of associations and meanings, thus emphasising the transformative potential of art to challenge historical exclusions and celebrate diverse perspectives.

Lim is a contemporary Singaporean artist. He was awarded a full scholarship award by the Maryland Institute College of Art to pursue a BFA in Painting, which he completed in 2022, Summa Cum Laude. He received the top prize in the 32nd UOB Painting of the Year Award as an emerging artist. His work has been shown in exhibitions both in Singapore and the United States.
