In May of 2015, Ahmad Prayoga suffered a terrible accident. The teen was working as a street vendor when he accidentally touched a live electric cable. His ensuing injuries left him without the four limbs the majority of us use most often.

He lost both his arms and his legs.

Imagine being a teenager and realizing your entire life has been turned upside down in the blink of an eye. One event changed everything for Ahmad, and he had to learn how to continue on without the limbs that had been there since he was born.

But it was not the end.

Instead of wallowing in his sorrow, the young man, who is now 19 years old, turned his tragedy into triumph.

The talented teen taught himself how to paint, using his mouth to hold the brush.

“I wish to fill my life with colors,” he said.

In the video below, you will see just how amazingly talented Ahmad truly is.

Moving his head while holding the paint brush in his mouth, the teen creates stunning landscapes on canvas.

Some of the young artist’s beautiful portfolio can be seen in the video below. Anyone who doesn’t know Ahmad’s story might look at his art and think the person has all their limbs!

“Painting makes me feel liberated and gives me a reason to live.”

From limbless to limitless.
