Every painting below is the work of an artist with a pronounced disability. It is mind boggling and ever so humbling that these artists have overcome social prejudice and even abject poverty to learn, paint, sculpt and thrive. A few are self taught while most have degrees from respected art colleges in India.
The celebrated NGO- Family of Disabled exhibits a well curated show of some of the best disabled artists in the country. Appreciate. Share. Buy.
The exhibition is being held at Arpana Art Gallery New Delhi till the 10th of December, 2014
