Chan Lim Family of Artists

Sep 2, 2017 //
The Chan Lim Family of Arts is best known for their Asian-Themed art with particular focus on Chinese brush painting. The family has been actively engaged in the arts for more than half a century to date. The three generations of the Chan Lim family use a multitude of media, styles, and techniques to incorporate Western into Eastern Art. They continue to get involved in the arts by actively developing and promoting Chinese brush painting in the Philippines and abroad.
Chan Lim, the family patriarch, originally dabbled mostly in Oil and Watercolor. Most of his art is on canvas. He recently ventured other types of media such as ceramic and porcelain plates, Asian lanterns and fans to blend Western and Eastern techniques.
The second generation of Chan Lims, Alex, Felix and Jolex, are all engineers by profession and are engaged in leadership positions with multinational companies.
To celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival, SM City East Ortigas and Chan Lim Family of Artists and students have prepared 135 hand painted fans. the exhibit is joined by 42 artists showcasing their rich culture and artistry. Exhibit will run from August 27 to September 24, 2017
My own hand painted fan. Not yet finished but looks good for me. Thank you to one of the students of CLFA who assisted me during the painting.
The Chan Lim family of Artists has traveled extensively across the Philippines islands to conduct numerous art exhibits, classes, workshops, seminars and on the spot painting demonstrations. Several thousands of people have attended these activities. The entire family has joined several art exhibits locally and internationally. The third generation of Chan Lim revel in exploring different types if modern techniques, such as digital media and apps, and incorporate these into their art.
The Chan Lim family aims to create art that does not exclude any media. Over the years they have continuously pushed the envelope on the type of media used for the Chinese brush. Their art subjects have included flora, fauna, landscape, even portraits. These themes can be seen in the most of the family's art, as well as their students. The family is one of the few remaining notable Chinese brush painting artists in the country today and is sought after in this field. Art classes are conducted in the family studio located in Pasig City. Their paintings can be found in private collections across the globe
