CJ Lim's Lisle Street Lettering

A simply blooming vision of London

5F – CJ Lim
“A Field of Culture”
Chinese lettering hand-cut on to 116gsm watercolour paper, encased in a hand-crafted and painted frame
460 x 640mm

CJ Lim recreated his allocated part of the London as a field of Chinese lettering. Every Chinese character discovered on walks around Lisle Street was redrawn and hand cut to create a pop up drawing. A flowering image to reflect the cultural diversity of London.

“Lisle Street is a unique part of London that is embellished with Chinese signage. Recognising that it was a part of what was once known as Leicester Fields, we re-imagined our designated square as a field lavished with Chinese lettering.” CJ Lim
