Mouth Painter

Antonio Davis was born on March 24, 1975 in Chicago.  In 1994, he suffered a gunshot wound to the chest that left him quadriplegic.  Prior to his injury, Antonio was studying graphic art at a vocational school in Chicago.  He was encouraged by a friend to start drawing again, this time by holding the pen in his mouth.  Subsequently, Robert Thome, MFPA full member artist inspired and encouraged Antonio to develop his skills as a mouth painter.

He now resides in his native Chicago with his wife and focuses mainly on portraits, landscapes and still lifes.
