He has had numerous solo exhibitions in Korea and America, and has been featured in many international shows, including the Venice Biennale. His work is in the collections of the Korea National Museum, Seoul Museum of Art, Samsung Museum, and other major museums. Lim Ok Sang is celebrated as one of the leading artists of the Minjung movement in Korea. He was one of the founders of the important critical journal, Reality and Utterance, that coincided with the beginning of the Minjung movement. Lim is an artist adept at poignant expression of the nature of mortality, the vulnerability and plight of the individual and humanity. The emphasis of his work has been not only to speak out against injustice and the forces of destruction, but to make one aware of the value of life and the importance of preserving and caring for the environment in which we live.

It is often featured in art and used as a good luck and guardian figure to bless and protect the home. Because it is believed the rooster's morning cry drove away the night's evil spirits, it is an important talisman. The rooster’s comb symbolizes intelligence; traditional officials’ hats are based on the comb. The claws represent strength. There is a museum in Seoul devoted entirely to chicken and rooster art. The beautiful plum blossoms here are a symbol of courage, because they bloom early, before winter is finished.
