Dr. Anthony P Yim is internationally acclaimed for his pioneering work in Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery. After his retirement from thoracic surgery in 2017, he decided to pursue his childhood dream of becoming an artist.
Over 227 paintings were completed in just over two years and represented a landmark achievement in the artist's progress in his pursuit of art.
“Art is a potent therapy for the artist as opposed to surgery, which is often an effective therapy for the patient. Art represents a personal journey in pursuit of perfection, and in the meantime, rediscover yourself.”
