Artists who overcame momentous hurdles for the sake of creativity

<![CDATA[Art is defined in a number of ways. But when nature combines strength and creativity, the result can be seen in the form of one of these human beings. Some people use the term “disabled”, but they will show why you should call them “uniquely able.”

This story is amazingly inspiring. Hal Lasko almost lost his eyesight and thought that he will never be able to play with colors. But his son taught him how to use paint on his new computer.

This Moroccan beauty is paralyzed but is passionate about painting. The paintings of this woman are as real as reality. They are as alive as any breathing thing. The way she expresses herself with just a paint brush and colors is simply a miracle as she turned into painting after an accident leaving her body almost immovable.

Some people show pity on those humans who lost their body parts. All those people should look at these humans and change the way they look at them because they don’t want your pity, all they want is to earn “respect” which they deserve.]]>
