Lim Pui Wan mines nostalgia with her miniature sculptures that are often based on her childhood memories. The self-taught artist started with food before moving on to intricately realised tiny replicas of everything from a coffeeshop to her grandmother's kitchen. Her works have exhibited at the Tokyo Dollhouse & Miniature Show in 2018 and she was invited by TedxPetaling Street in 2017 to share her artistic journey. Earlier this year, she tutored Deadpool and The Hitman's Bodyguard actor Ryan Reynolds about miniature art on his Snapchat series, Ryan Doesn't Know.
She works under the professional name of PicoWorm—according to her website, the name is a combination of the word 'pico', which is a tremendously small unit in metric system, and 'worm', which is derived from the word 'bookworm'. It so happens that P.W. is also her initials.
We ask Lim to list five of her favourite works, in no particular order, so far.
