JJ’s Mouth Paintings
JJ Bezuidenhout, a quadriplegic is a mouth painter and wildlife artist. He has joined Mouth and Foot Artist Association which is an organization operating worldwide. He paints by mouth and thereby expresses his artistic talent this way.
JJ resides in a prime eco-tourism area of Hluhluwe, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa and is inspired by the diverse nature and wildlife of this region. He is presently concentrating on wildlife and birds as a subject but he is able also to enjoy other subjects and enjoys working with acrylic paints and sketching with pencil. He has recently been selected to be part of the Association Mouth and Foot Painters based in Switzerland and was one of four of 100 applicants chosen to be part of this organisation.
He takes great joy in reaching out to the public and inspiring others with his work which is especially popular with children. One of his projects includes a wonderful day spent with special needs children in a rural area and teaching them how to paint by mouth – something they had never seen or done before!
