19-year-old Ahmad Prayoga from North Sumatra, Indonesia, lost both his arms and legs in a terrible accident two years ago but that did not deter the young man from dreaming big.
Using his mouth to hold a paint brush, Ahmad creates strokes by moving his head and brings beautiful landscapes to life on canvas. “I wish to fill my life with colours. Painting makes me feel liberated and gives me a reason to live,” says the young artist.
