SM City North Edsa Launched Chinese New Year with Chan Lim Art Exhibit

Chines New Year will be celebrated in the coming week and each year, SM Supermalls particularly SM City North Edsa never fails to amaze it’s customers with wonderful theme displays. For this special occasion, the Chan Lim Family of Artists will showcase a magnificent exhibit of their artworks.

The Chan Lim Family Artists has been engaged in the arts for close to half a century. In the present, there are threee generations of Chan Lim artists who use a wide variety of media, styles and techniques to incorporate Western into Eastern art. The family continues to get involved in the arts by actively developing and promoting Chinese brush painting in the Philippines and abroad. The Chan Lims also support several charitable organizations with a special focus on environmental sustainability.

The passion of Chan Lim, the family patriarch, lies in Oil and Watercolor. While most of his art are on canvas, he has forayed into other media such as porcelain plates, Asian lanterns and fans to infuse Western techniques into the traditional Eastern art. Bound by their passion for the arts, the Chan Lim family ofArtists has conducted numerous art classes, workshops, seminars and on-the-spot painting demonstrations.


Speaking of which, we had the chance to witness an on-the-spot watercolor painting by Dr. Alex Chan Lim.

And of course, we also became one of their students for the day. We learned some basic Chinese watercolor painting.



The event was also graced by Mr. Robin Padilla.
