Lim Khim Katy is a Cambodian / Vietnamese artist (born 1978 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam) who draws inspirations for her paintings from real life experiences and interactions with ordinary people, many of who have endured hardship and suffering.
Born in Vietnam’s southern commercial hub of Ho Chi Minh
City in 1978, Lim Khim Katy is the daughter of a
Cambodian father and a Vietnamese mother, both of whom
“My inheritance includes a love of colour, a familiarity with
brushes and an attraction to shapes from the time I first
became conscious of the sun and the moon.”
Lim Khim Katy draws inspirations for her paintings from
real life experiences and interactions with ordinary people,
many of who have endured hardship and suffering.
“My paintings come from the feelings generated by observing
life around me, from people’s eyes, gestures and the
individual emotions they express. I often observe emotions
expressed in the faces of people who have suffered hardships.
“Whenever I experience ‘artist’s block’ I stop what I am doing
and take a walk by myself, alone with my thoughts in order
to observe people; it’s the best inspiration I can ask for in my
Capturing a person’s eyes is what is most important for
Katy. For her, eyes are the gateway to the soul. “When I look
into people’s eyes I believe I can understand them and relate
to their stories.”
Katy’s paintings of nostalgic village homes or colorful
landscapes express both strong emotion and great tranquility
and compliment her often melancholic portraits.
