    Mouth and Foot Painting Artists

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra

Story

The Mouth and Foot Painting Artists Association (MFPA) is an international registered society of disabled artists, who due to a disability to their hands, create art with their mouth or foot. Stricken with disease, accident or birth deformities that resulted in the unfortunate loss of their arms, these unique artists create paintings by holding the paint brushes clenched with their teeth or held between their toes.

With over 800 artists from 74 countries, the MFPA instils in its artists a sense of self-respect and dignity that comes from earning an independent, honest and secure livelihood through the sale of their artwork, free from any charity.

In India, the Association currently supports 30 member artists from across the country; The artists come from a diverse cultural background spread across the states of Maharashtra, Jammu & Kashmir, Gujarat, Uttaranchal, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

 Members work individually from their homes and regularly submit artworks to the Association.
