Julius Teh Limpe

Manila, Philippines 1946


Julius Teh Limpe was born in San Nicolas, Binondo, the Chinatown district of Old Manila, on February 1, 1927.

At the young age of six, he already loved drawing. He reminisced, “I would just pick up objects in my mind and pieces in my textbooks to draw with pencil and crayons on paper. Art was my first hobby. I would draw posters for our school. When I studied in Indiana, I also enrolled in four of five art subjects. Art became my minor.”

Limpe was the only business student who would cross over to the art department of Indiana University in the US. He graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Management and minored in Fine Arts.
