Lim Zhi Wei, who goes by the nickname Limzy, is a Malaysian artist based in Singapore. Born in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, she moved to study in Singapore at the age of 16. She was a fine art graduate of Nanyang Academy of Fine Art Singapore (NAFA).
She started #instaartmovement on Instagram when she was still an art teacher after graduation. Everyday after work, there is not much time, energy and light left for her to paint big paintings, so she started to portray her subjects using various little things found in her room and daily life. It was fun, simple, un-overanalysed and just so right. From food to flowers, pencils to cotton, stamps to thread, you name it.
Limzy’s works are curated on Instagram herself as she treats it as a gallery of its own and a place that conveys happiness through art for everyone to enjoy. It is indeed life changing. Her works have been featured by both local and overseas media including Instagram homepage, Mayhem Magazine Australia, Elements Magazine Malaysia, Push Culture and Uncertain Magazine Singapore.
For year 2014, Limzy will be expanding her series of Flowerworks and #wearflowersinstead. Her artworks are currently represented by Art Xchange Gallery Singapore.
