Alumni: Hector Lim, Primordial Creations
Myths, Fantasy, Gods & Demons. These are some of the many genres by notable artist Hector Lim. With a dream of making his own model when he was young, he research a lot of information from the world wide web and various modeling & sculpting books. This is where he began to conceptualize, develop & create his own style of various artworks.
A graduate in Diploma in Graphic Design and majoring in Fine Art, Hector was passionate to enhance his skills and techniques in sculpting. After working with several art companies, he has gained the experience and knowledge to further improve himself and define his style in the field of sculpting.
Since young, Hector is strongly influenced by Mythical Creatures, Fantasy, Science-Fiction & History, thus giving birth to most of his creations. When he started Primordial Creations, Hector focus on retaining the originals concepts of his work and with the basic techniques to showcase all his final art in the most realistic appearance.
One of Hector’s most notable sculptures is Bael, the demon. Bael is the head of the infernal powers and the first demon listed in Pseudomonarchia daemonum. The Lesser Key of Solomon describes him as a hoarsely-voiced king with the power to make men invisible and ruling over sixty-six legions of demons, His main appearance takes the form of a cat, toad & a man.
Hector will first conceptualize his idea and design and research on the character before moving into the sculpting process. During the entire process, adjustments were made to make the character look more realistic. With the final sculptor ready and assisted by Loh Choy Yin’s skills in painting, thus bringing the sculpture of Bael to life.
His sculpting is best present in recasting with resin due to all the details made in each piece, soft vinyl would not be able to pull off the end result he is looking for.
In the 2020 Taipei Toy Festival, his most recent work, Alice in Wonderland – Devil Fairytales “Time Rabbit” won first place for its amazing details and concept. The character was inspired by the art of Po-Wen.
Let us look forward to the new updates on his upcoming characters from his previous project series, 72 Pillars of Solomon.
