60 x 80cm
Born on 24 January 1994, Lim Yu Heng is a young man with autism and an artistic flair. His talent began to surface after he picked up his first pencil at the age of two. His creativity and photographic memory enables him to create interesting characters inspired by cartoons, computer games and television programmes.
His fascination with insects, especially ants, allows him to draw them from different angles while showcasing them in different forms. Through persistent coaching by his mom and art teacher, he is able to harness his insect-drawing skills and channel them into his creations. In this series, ants were chosen as the artistic focus in forming the portraits and other ideas.
