Concerning his art, artist Tai-Meng Lim stated, "I understand that there are unlimited possibilities as well as endless variations that can be explored throughout my journey as an artist and the creative process that comes with it. I tirelessly play with various techniques to produce and bring to reality my concepts and ideas." He added, "Nothing would be of greater joy to me than to be able to convey through my work that 'There is art in nature, and nature in art'."
Art critic Brian Sherwin, Editor of The Art Edge, commented on Tai-Meng's acrylic and oil paintings, saying, "Tai-Meng reveals the complex -- yet simplistic -- beauty of life. My statement may seem like a contradiction... but as we all know, life is combination of the two. When viewing a field one may notice a burst of light upon a blade of grass -- yet a shadow may be observed nearby. Life is filled with these juxtapositions. In a sense, Tai-Meng captures that harmony with paint."
