The late Mr Lim Yee Hoh was born in Malaysia into a Hokkien family in 1924. His grandparents immigrated to Malaysia from Fujian Province in the late 1800s and started a business in rubber plantations, trading, and processing as the Yee Seng Group. Lim Yee Hoh was active in Malaysia’s various Chinese and Hokkien communities.

Apart from being a well-established business personality in Malaysia, Lim Yee Hoh was fond of art and music and also actively devoted himself to philanthropy. He was a generous patron of the arts, providing funds to the local symphony orchestras and supporting the development of the local arts scene. Lim often travelled between Hong Kong and Singapore for business, using his spare time to collect works of art from galleries and auction houses. He accumulated an impressive art collection over the years, especially works by modern and contemporary artists.
