Lim Ka Seng has more than 40 years of experience in art, and places emphasis on colour and form. In this pure landscape, the quality of light and clarity of air are captured magnificently. Here, the artist gives prominence to the majestic power of natural forms, using strong trees and light effects to heighten the grandeur of nature.

He was President of the Contemporary Malaysian Watercolourists Association (CMWA) between 1998-2001. In 1998, he won the Education Minister Award from Japan Modern Arts Association in Osaka, Japan. He has participated in numerous international exhibitions in the Asia Pacific, such as the Guangzhou Art Fair in China (2008), and Hangzhou Art Fair, China (2009).
