23-year-old Polish artist, Mariusz Kędzierski was born without arms and creates hyperrealistic drawings. His amazing work of arts is simply stunning. He proves that everything is possible with the willpower and determination. He says “It doesn’t mean that I have to forget my dreams and a disability doesn’t mean that I can’t live my own, great life.”
The 23-year-old artist was interested in art when he was just three. He figured out how to draw and paint despite his disability until the age of twelve when he had to stop for health reasons. Yet, after a 2008 surgery, everything changed. He was able to draw again, which was a tremendous relief.
“A few years ago I couldn’t even imagine that art would be a part of my life,” he said. “But now it is!”
Mariusz Kędzierski has created 700 hyper-realistic portraits that took him over 15,000 hours to create in last seven years. He draws by holding a pencil against the ends of his arms.
He got 2nd prize “Best Global Artist” in Vienna in 2013.
