Lim Leong Seng grew up in the 50s in a village at Island Club Road in Singapore. At the age of 18, under the guidance of Buddhist Master Veneable ‘Zhumo’, Leong Seng took up Buddhist studies and Chinese painting. He graduated from the Baharuddin Vocation Institute in 1971.

A full time sculptor based in Singapore since 1990, Leong Seng is equally know for his diverse range of painting style.

In 1977, at the Modern Art Society 13th Annual Exhibition, Leong Seng’s 7 feet high sculpture caused a controversy for its radically experimental nature. Leong Seng intrepid character and his openness to change and willingness to experiment with new material and approaches in art making are keys to his impressive span in his visual art practice.

As a full time artist and sculptor, Leong Seng’s love of using bronze to depict prominent figure (our late Mr Lee Kuan Yew) , rickshaw rider and samsui women has helped him gained much recognition and popularity. It helps that bring back old memories and the history of Singapore.
