Lim Zhi Wei, who goes by the pseudonym and childhood nickname Limzy is a Malaysian visual artist. She grew up in her hometown Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and later moved to Singapore at the age of 16. She was a fine art graduate of Nanyang Academy of Fine Art Singapore (NAFA) of year 2011, majoring in Western Painting and a recipient of the NAFA Full Scholarship during her studies in the college.
After graduation, she began teaching children’s art full time. It was the time when she got driven by how children view the world differently, and inspired by the materials she used to teach in class. She found that she had minimal time to create her own work, hence making full use of little objects she found around her home and class.
Multidimensional in her talents, Limzy is highly regarded in the fields of visual arts, digital and social media. 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. Her works involve using ordinary materials from flowers to stationeries found in everyday life that connects instantaneously to everyone. It is a indeed life changing decision which allows her works to gain worldwide recognition and an amazing amount of audience growing everyday. Her works
have been featured by both local and overseas media including Instagram homepage, My Modern Met United States, Bored Panda, Mayhem Magazine Australia, Elements Magazine
Malaysia, Push Culture and Uncertain Magazine Singapore, and she was invited as a presenter at 2014 Malaysia Forum in National University Singapore, and Mother’s Day
Campaign and Workshop at Rockstar Singapore 2014.
For year 2015, Limzy will continue to expand and experiment her works as small as on a paper, and as large as on an installation.
