Anthony Yim



Anthony Yim’s teenage dream was to become an artist, but instead he became a doctor following the advice of his late father. Dr. Yim graduated from Cambridge University and Oxford University Medical School, and later became one of the earliest pioneers of minimally invasive chest surgery in the world. His medical achievements, however, did not deter him from his pursuit of art. After his retirement from surgery in 2017, he began his new life as an artist. He amazed his peers by his artistic accomplishments in just over two years. Dr. Yim’s work is focused on exploring the use of innovative materials as media of creation, as well as experimenting with different pigments in a scientific manner he was brought up to do. His work epitomises a subtle combination of art creation and science, presenting unique artistic effects with different creative methods. His style has moved naturally from realism to abstract. Artistic creation has now become an important channel for him to express his thoughts and feelings.
