Creativity From Above

When Mariusz Kędzierski puts his pencil to the paper, a rare talent comes out that you might not expect just by looking at him. Born without arms, Kedzierski, had to learn to do thing differently than most other kids. Despite his disability, he fell in love with art and figured out a way that he could create it- Like you’ve never seen before.

Since the age of 3 Kedzierski was in love with art. Now at age 23, he has become a sensation. He draws by holding the pencil against the ends of his arms. For the past seven years, Kędzierski has created hundreds of hyper-realistic portraits, that took him over 15,000 hours to create.

Kedzierski told the Huffington Post, “Each drawing takes me more than 20 hours, but if you want to be the best, you have to practice, and you can not look for any excuses.” All his art was self-taught, expressing his own pain through the faces of the people that he depicts.

Taking second place in the “Best Global Artist” in Vienna in 2013, he has made some pretty big steps in his art career even selling some of his work in the U.S., U.K. and South Korea. He says, “For me, a disability doesn’t mean that I can’t live my own, great life.”
