The Malaysian Female Artists You Need To Know: Lim Pui Wan

From sculptors to illustrators and painters to miniature artists, we spoke to eight of Kuala Lumpur’s most interesting female artists about their distinctive art-forms and to unravel more about their killer art-titude.

In this third edition, we highlight the work of Lim Pui Wan, whose journey into miniature art began in 2007; with a dollhouse book her sister gifted her from Taiwan. The former mechanical engineering graduate soon realised that reading the book cover-to-cover barely satisfied the curiosity in her, and that’s when she decided to dabble in this intricate art.

“Some of my artworks are created from memories, especially those of old school objects, food or snacks we used to have in our childhood,” explained Lim Pui Wan, who also accepts commissioned works, like the provision shop she completed for a client’s grandfather.

Like many creative souls, this self-taught, full-time miniature artist whose current biggest goal is to host an exhibition of her work thrives from solitude. “I love to think before I sleep. Ideas always pop out when I’m at peace or in a peaceful environment – be it on a bus ride alone or having a quick jog in the park.”
