Hands-Free Paintings by Huang Guofu

Artistically gifted people can create beautiful art, no matter what. Chinese artist Huang Guofu proves the point. He lost both his arms at the age of four due to an electrical accident. Undeterred by his handicap, he started painting with his feet to support his sick father when he was twelve years old. Later he taught himself to paint with his mouth too (using a different brush, I hope). He sold his paintings on the street and at first, people bought them out of pity. These days, his paintings are considered collector’s items in China. ” I want to let the younger generation know that there are no real obstacles in life. The only obstacle is if you want to do it”. – Huang Guofu
