When flowers meet watercolor
“I believe that art can be found not only in high-end galleries,” – said about her project Lim Zhi Wei. She has created a wonderful series of watercolor drawings, decorated with flower petals. Lim Zhi Wei, also known under the nickname Limzy – artist from Singapore. The style of her work is very unusual. Because of this unique technique, which, perhaps, was not used by anyone, she has become known not only in her country but also far beyond its borders. Pictures of the artist executed in watercolor, then the drawing is complemented by flower petals. She does it very skillfully, the color and delicately attached to the drawing petals add completeness and greater expressiveness to the whole image. The idea of such unusual patterns came to the artist while she invented an original gift for her grandmother. Then she draw a girl in a dress of rose petals, for the first time.
Watercolor flowers turn gentle and even airy. Limzy until recently worked as an art teacher, and is now fairly well-known creative artist. In addition to the work with flowers she does other projects. Some of her works include unusual food art Paintings, Watercolors with stones, leaves and more. Since most of the elements of her paintings live in a relatively short time, the work of Lim Zhi Wei remain only in photographs.
Limzy’s statement: “When I was younger and didn’t really understand abstract art, I later figured out that the most fundamental formal elements come from no other than our great mother nature. This seemed to open up my mind and from then onwards, I am able to appreciate great works from Mark Rothko, Picasso to Joan Miro. In some ways, this is like a metamorphosis of my way of thinking and how I took a big step in the journey of pursuing art. Take a close look at the petal and you will realize that it is a great art itself, as simple and genuine as that”.
