Alisa Lim A Po

Alisa Julia Lim A Po (born 1975) was born to be an artist and studied at the Academy of Visual Arts in Holland and then embarked on a career in advertising, but her true calling drew her back to making sublime semi-figurative pieces which verge into abstraction. Lim A Po creates beautiful and bold work, art that deals with the multifaceted nature of society and our place within it. The distinctive technique makes for layered work, at times thick and rich in texture and at others almost transparent.
The use of acrylic on a smooth hydrophobic surface -like aluminium and copper-makes for an underlying tension between the paint and the surface. What we have with Lim A Po’s work is a sublime representation of the existential; these stunning pieces resonate with a profound sense of humanity combined with distinctive technique, creating a visually stunning effect. There is a quite drama doing on, the tranquillity belies the power and the impact of these remarkable pieces.
