Lim challenges preconceived notions of ceramics, broadening the medium beyond its utilitarian traditions, bringing it to the forefront of today's contemporary art practices.

Upaya is the Sanskrit word loosely referring to skilful means. In Buddhism it is associated with the “Earth Witness” mudra, specifically with the right hand of Buddha, all five fingers extended towards the ground, during the moment of enlightenment.

Lim has participated in various international performance art festivals and attended residency programs in Japan, the Netherlands, Australia, Poland, UK, and USA. He was included in the 52th Venice Biennale (2007) during which he presented two ceramics installations; and the 2007 Ceramics Biennale (Incheon, Korea) where he received the Juror Prize.
