About the book:
Martin See Tho lost his mother at age three and father at age 15. At age 32, he became a wheel-chair bound victim of Machado Joseph Disease, an incurable degenerative disorder that robbed him of his career, dignity and all his physical abilities.

Martin graduated as a Mechanical Engineer with zero knowledge in Art. However, he persevered through all pains, hardships and disabilities, and learned digital painting at age 36. The journey was never smooth for Martin, but through unwavering faith, arduous work and tenacity, he eventually emerged as a true victor and gained recognition as a Singapore Signature Artist in 2007 at age 38. Martin passed away peacefully in 2009 at age 40, leaving behind a legacy of 160 digital artworks which he created during the most despairing last lap of his life.

This book is Martin’s poignant, intensely moving testimony of living life to the fullest till the very last moment visualised by his Art. It is a compilation of hope, optimism and immeasurable grit, made possible only by the sheer and unflinching love and conviction of a wife, caregiver, and soulmate, Sandra Choo.


Net proceeds from the sale of this book and the auction of three of Martin’s artworks will go to support The Book Council in their mission to encourage and support local content creation through writing, reading, illustrating and storytelling.
