Differently-Abled Artist Paints to Fight Against the Odds

Art has always had the power to inspire people. It has not only proved to be a source of creativity for the artists, but has also united people under one roof.

Such is the case of Zuly Sanguino, a girl from Colombia suffering from Tetra-Amelia Syndrome, a rare disorder due to which her four limbs were not developed. However, she has not lost hope and has worked her way to achieve her dreams.

Despite being bullied, mocked and looked down upon, she has emerged as a talented artist.

With years of practice, this artist has mastered the art of painting. After using her upper arm to paint a background onto a canvas, she paints the fine strokes with her mouth in order to draw the minute details of her piece.

In a country where differently-abled people receive no financial support from the government, she paints to earn a living. She has became an icon of strength and inspiration for many people all over the world.
