Artist Biography
Zachary Lim
Born and raised in Singapore, Zachary is a seasoned artist.  Painting for his personal enjoyment and in memory of his
late father, Zachary is a self-taught artist who uses oil predominantly as a medium for his expression.  Having been a
photographer for 20 years and an artist all his life, Zachary’s keen eye for shapes and colours is reflected in the richness
of his works, which showcase his signature three-dimensional, multi-faceted, textured touch.  A self-written poem that
accompanies each piece of work is his distinctive way of complementing the beauty of his creations.  His style is best
described as a meld of romanticism with both classical and modern art forms.

In 2007 and 2008, Zachary held two solo exhibitions at the Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore and Carcosa Seri Negara in
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia respectively.  The charity exhibition in Kuala Lumpur graced by His Holiness and The Twelfth
Gyalwang Drukpa, was an overwhelming success and Zachary’s creations were purchased by guests from all over the
world, including those from United Kingdom, China, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore.  

Additionally, some of his art pieces were accorded the Special Merit Award Online Art Competition organised by the
Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery in Florida, United States. The art pieces were:

An artist who is passionate about his craft, Zachary also contributes actively to arts education in his community.  
Having been deprived of formal training despite discovering his talent at a tender age, Zachary’s aspiration is to help
other budding artists develop their passion and chase their dreams.  He organises workshops regularly to share his
techniques and ideation process to help, in his own personal way, build a more vibrant arts scene in Singapore.
