 Painter embraces East and West

Singaporean painter Lim Siang Hiong was invited to hold a show at Peking University during his visit to the university to donate his big painting Autumn Walk. The show, entitled Fusion of East and West, presents typical works of the 69-year-old, who is good at combining the bright colors from the oil painting and abstract ink lines from Chinese painting. His works on display depict landscapes, rural life of farmers and cowboys. Lin studied fine arts at the Singapore Academy of Fine Arts and later went to Paris for further studies in the 1970s.

9 am-4 pm, until June 9. Peking University Hall, 5 Yiheyuan Road, Haidian district, Beijing. 010-6276-8588.
