After becoming paralysed at the age of 22, Gilbert Tan thought his life was over. But perseverance and dedication saw him become a world-renowned artist who paints with the brush in his mouth.
SINGAPORE: Gilbert Tan was just 22 years old when a regular visit to a swimming pool ended life as he knew it.
He remembers what happened vividly. The year was 1983, and it was just five days before National Day. Then an architectural draftsman at Hitachi, he was with his colleagues at Delta Sports Complex in Redhill.
