An Artist Who Draws With Feet

“My name is Diego. I am from Medellin. I don’t have a family and live alone here. I love drawing. When I was a kid I went to a school to learn it. My class fellows would ask me how I would draw without arms. I practiced day and night and now I am a professional. I draw portraits of people in the street and also do paintings and other art work. I also teach drawing.

I tell my students if I can drawing without hands, you can surely do it with your hands.”

Diego draws a live portrait for 25,000 COP. For more realistic drawings, it is 80,000 COP.
