“I believe beauty is found in art - in a world where the imperfect is presented perfectly. That is the science of beauty.”— Dr. TWL
Dr. Teo Wan Lin is a model turned board-certified dermatologist practising in Singapore who has authored more than 10 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Her artwork tells a modern tale of beauty-a synergy of science with the aesthetic experience defined as beauty.
As a former national team fencer for Singapore, Wan Lin competed at the World Cup Epee level and trained with olympic coaches before retiring from the sport in 2012.
“Fencing, the oldest Olympic sport, is both an art and science. The highest artistic endeavours are measured by both technique and spontaneity, also the ability to transcend time and space. The science of fencing is the execution of the final touché, perfected by muscle memory. The art of fencing is a dance with an opponent in a surreal world of time and distance that exists only in your mind’s eye.”
