Huang Guofu

Huang Guofu, "The Armless Painter"

"Huang Guofu is a man who doesn’t make excuses. He lost his arms at the age of 4 in a terrible accident involving electricity. But he never gave up his dream of becoming an artist and taught himself to paint by foot and mouth. He is now the vice-curator of the Chongqing Talents Museum, creating sought-after public masterpieces."

I want to let the younger generation know that there are no real obstacles in life. The only obstacle is if you want to do it…
~Huang Guofu
Like Judith Scott, Guofu's own self acts as artistic and political symbolism for disability awareness and equality. Their work compliments this relation, as it is evident their works are of high quality and their physical or mental challenges are not constraining from these achievements.
