MOUTH & FOOT PAINTING ARTISTS PTE LTD
Aaron Yeo Kwok Chian
Aaron Yeo Kwok Chian was born on the 24 of January, 1979. On 12 November 2006, he was involved in a motorbike accident and sustained a grave injury to his spinal cord. He then met another tetraplegic, Gilbert Tan Yue Liang, who introduced him to mouth painting. Painting was a hidden talent that he discovered he could pursue. Being part of the Association of Mouth & Foot Painting Artists, he is now enjoying his time painting and is also free from burdening his family financially.
Christina, Lau Lay Lian
Christina, Lau Lay Lian was a Prison Officer before she became paralised in 2005 due to a car accident in Malaysia. A group of friends introduced her to mouth painting in 2009. From then onwards, she skillfully taught herself to paint and was recognised by MFPA as a Student Member in March 2012.
Daniel, Tan Beng Leong
Daniel, Tan Beng Leong met with a car accident at a young age of 20. His paralysis caused him to be fully dependent on his family’s moral and financial support for more than 25 years. He was then accepted as a mouth artist in MFPA. This changed his lifestyle and he began to find the meaning and purpose in life.
Kok Tuck Chong
Kok Tuck Chong is a quadriplegic, meaning paralysis of 4 limbs. He got his injury in 1990 when he fell off the escalator which left him confined to the wheelchair permanently. Even though he could use his shoulder, arm and wrist, he had very limited control over his fingers. He had always enjoyed painting but it was difficult with the brushes held in his mouth. In the end, he was able to overcome his difficulties with perseverance and determination.
