Matador Review

A Quarterly Missive of Alternative Concern

KONAN LIM






(My style has been formulated through whimsical happy thoughts into a realistic interpretation. The characters are stuck in childhood nostalgia, blended with classical surface on present pace. Cuteness overload with touches of colorful and playful surprises, mixed with a dark suspicious atmosphere. The detailed elements intertwining the blurry background provoke a thrilling question.)

Konan Lim is a Dubai-based Filipino artist. Born and raised in Philippines, he began to discover and enhance the passion of art at a very young age. He joined and won numerous art competitions during his childhood. In 2005, he received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture at Western Mindanao State University, Zamboanga City, Philippines. 

In 2007, he moved to Dubai and worked as an architect, but retained his passion for painting. He has participated in several group exhibitions, from local art scenes to international show, and has also been commissioned in some mural art events and collaborated with several artists.
