Using forced perspective, the pieces are designed in which standing directly center in front of the paintings, the viewer sees the image as a flat image. Once the viewer stands or walks away from the center point, Tommii Lim Creates the illusion of warped stretching which he uses to symbolize the illusion of projected images in today's social media driven digital world.

Tommii Lim paints the Savage Palms Of LA for his collaboration with premiere Japanese Golf Brand Mark & Lona.
The Savage Palms
The beautiful palms of Los Angeles,
The hypnotic songs of the air they kiss,
They hold transplanted beauty of dessert angels.
Their arms mold dreams that they will mangle.
Gazes hooded, up in the ceiling.
Faces rooted, deep is the feeling.
They tear, sharp like ravage bombs.
Beware the arms of The Savage Palms.

Tommii Lim was named the guest creative director of ASIF’s spring / summer 2016 line. This collaboration between the future sneaker line and Tommii Lim marked the inaugural season for the Tommii Lim x ASIF Sona Moon Boot.
A concept silhouette created to supplant the idea that utilitarian pieces can never orbit the world of high fashion. In concept, Sona is a sneaker built on top of ASIF’s signature ultra-light running bottom. In effect, however, the Sona is a moon-boot inspired foot brace utilizing three oversized straps. These medial in-step sided strap enclosures offer a new take on shoe stability and security.

A solo exhibition of works by Tommii Lim encompassing the tale of his eye accident and journey to recovery in the shape of an abstract installation.
LA based artist Tommii Lim and Rich Cofinco’s ASIF (As See In the Future) future sneaker brand collaborated on a one night pop up exhibition titled ‘The Absence Of Color‘ in DTLA.
The event highlighted and combined the recent works of Tommii Lim’s fresh and bold minimal black and white art with the newly anticipated season of ASIF’s sleek new line integrated through out the three story penthouse space.
The pairing of the two within the black and white furnished environment worked as a seamless marriage of art meeting design through a minimal, sleek and monotone visual language. Every detail in the exhibition was hand selected and created to view inside the scope of Tommii Lim and ASIF’s combined worlds. The event was recorded in Virtual Reality and attendees were able to view an interactive 3D VR interview of Tommii Lim immersed in his art work filmed by Steve Tamago Yoon. The over capacity night also had appearances by celebrities like actor Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), James Roh from Far East Movement, celebrity chef Chris Oh (Seoul Sausage), actor C.S. Lee (Dexter) and a live rooftop performance by up and coming indie synth band Neonderthal.
