Lester Lim


Born in 1971, Lester fell in love with drawing the moment he was able to hold a pen. He discovered painting not long after that and has been exploring the medium ever since. After studying Graphic Design at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Lester began his career in advertising, and for more than two decades has been producing award-winning work. In 1999, he set up Creaxis Design, boutique agency with select regional and international clients. In order to satisfy his growing interest in product design, he and his wife Yang founded Gagatree, a creative shop focused on designing unique products with an Asian touch. Gagatree creations are available in shops and museums around the world, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Despite his success in the world of advertising and design, Lester has never considered himself anything but an artist. He is never without his beloved sketchbook, whether out for a stroll or travelling internationally, and never too busy to pick up a paintbrush.
