I guess we should start by saying this is not a common occurrence. It’s very rare that we, over a VinylOctopus, publish an article based on the premises of how cute it is. However, today we are doing just that. It may not be hugely ‘cool’ but art is art and we like what we like.
So today we introduce you to Malaysian artist Lim Heng Swee. Based in Kuala Lumpur, he create playful illustrations often paired with funny little quotes or a play on words. However, it is the simplicity of his pieces that I enjoy. Using fairly simple shapes and objects he creates quirky, colourful pieces that can capture the viewer’s imagination.
His work also carries a modern look to it whilst maintaining a positive attitude with strong themes such as love, humour, joy and happiness.
