Qixuan Lim’s Endearing, Disconcerting Sculptures

by Andy SmithPosted on


Qixuan Lim, also known as Qimmyshimmy, uses polymer clay to create tiny sculptures depicting infants and body organs. When removed from a singular context and placed into plastic packaging, these items become disturbing suckers, medication, and other types of edible objects. The Singapore-raised artist is currently based in the Netherlands.

“My aesthetic sensibilities have been shaped by my love for fantasy stories, old curiosities, time-travel and my yearning for worlds natural and imagined,” the artist says. “A designer by day and an artist by nightfall, I fuel my two passions with caffeine and even bigger dreams.”

The artist is a designer by day. She graduated from the School of Art, Design & Media – Nanyang Technological University in 2014, garnering a degree in visual communication. She typpically works with agencies and start-ups as an art director and graphic designer, when not creating these creep-cute objects.
