Tommii Lim is an artist from Los Angeles. His works are high contrast minimalist black and white depictions of observations and memories. His distinct style has been described as a sleek seduction of lines that often capture movement in moments.
He has spent the greater part of the last decade creating murals and immersive installations around the globe including projects with Kobe Bryant, Nike, Google, Steph Curry, Under Armour, Belzberg Architects, Mark & Lona (Japan), Honda, and was managed by the late Karl Bornstein (MOCA, Patrick Nagel).
Lim makes his return to the gallery world with
his homecoming LA solo exhibition ‘ODD MAN OUT’, where he depicts his
take on identity in today’s ‘15 seconds of fame’ generation. “This show is a
journal to asking myself, ‘Which me am I today?’” His showpiece is a 10-foot
depiction of Bruce Lee titled ‘Chino’. “Growing up as an Asian in LA, I
hated Bruce Lee, he was a derogatory racial slur. As I got older, I realized
how disruptive and extraordinary he was. ‘Chino’ is a reflection of the
baggage I shunned as a youth transformed into the foundation of my existence
‘ODD MAN OUT’ is Lim’s most honest
body of work to date. The show encompasses his faults, strengths and the
questions he asks himself daily. Works include large format paintings, prints,
sculptures, mirrors and a giant balloon installation.
