Ora-Ora Live — Episode 24 - Interview with Art Collector William Lim

February 5, 2021

This week we speak to architect, collector, curator and artist William Lim on how the pandemic has reinstilled and developed his interest in painting as an artistic practice. We discuss his most recent oil paintings - interior spaces of his late mother and brother's rooms, and how they've become a means of emotional relief and reflection.
