An individual’s true character is measured by the effort they put forth and their persistence when pursuing their passions. It’s easy to give up and declare that one isn’t talented enough, financially stable enough, supported enough, or smart enough (etc…) to succeed, but one will never know what they are truly capable of until they at least try.

For Polish artist Mariusz Kędzierski, it would have been easy to give up on his dream of being an artist. After all, he was born without hands. But from a young age, he knew that he loved to draw. So, he taught himself how to sketch and never let his disability hold him back.


As MyModernMet shares, the artist was forced to stop painting and drawing at age 12 due to upcoming surgeries. But once he fully healed, he was able to begin crafting artwork in 2008. As the photos below reveal, his ability to draw exceeds most peoples’.

“For me, a disability doesn’t mean that I can’t live my own, great life,” the artist shares.

In the last 8 years, Kędzierski has sketched over 700 pieces which reportedly took him more than 15,000 hours to complete. It’s this attitude that earned the inspiring activist the “Man Without Barriers” Audience Prize in Poland. Work by the self-taught artist can now be purchased in the U.S. Great Britain, and South Korea.
