                         The embodiment of a true artist!

     So I was walking along the street at a local art fair passing by booth after booth of sub par doodles people call art and bored and unamused I suddenly had something catch my eye. Amazing truly beautiful and unique paintings,a breath of fresh air. I couldn't stop staring at these paintings,they have still stuck in my mind weeks later.I stopped and talked with the artist. And all I have to say is in the 5-10 minutes I conversed with him and got his info I knew I had stumbled upon someone who I feel should be known all over the world, not only for his art,his personality,his drive, and his strength and ability to do what he loves and execute it in such a amazing way. In the world I live in I see artist who don't even have 1/3 of the talent that this man possess. See Kirk not only has amazing talent but he paints wiht his mouth,wanna know more check out his site and his f.b. In the next month or so I hope to do a interview with this artist on a big upcoming project I am doing on artist that need to be well known.So please check him out and see what I am talking about.And hey buy his art think of it as a investment, because if I have anything to do with it hes going to be even more known then he is now.
                   CHECK HIM OUT !   kirkohara.com/

Oh and also he is what you call a “mouth painter” Just another element of what makes him amazing.

I have been working as a professional artist since 1986 when, at age 15, my art was first displayed. I am submitting my letter of intent to selected art galleries and magazines which may be interested in the presentation of some of my professional drawings.



I was born with arthrogryposis, a disabling condition which limits the use of my arms and legs. As an adolescent, I found that I was able to exercise my creative ability through the execution of mouth painting. Throughout the past years, I have gained a specialty and notoriety for my contributions in southwest design, and an anthropomorphic style of animation. As my resume reflects, I have participated in numerous art shows and have been featured in a vast amount of publications and articles. Additionally, I have appeared on television on numerous occasions.

My desire is to explore the opportunity of contributing to your magazine and/or art show. I would be able to provide you with numerous industry references, as well as a comprehensive portfolio of my work during a personal meeting.

Thank you for your time and consideration of my professional pursuits. I look forward to hearing from you. thanks
i will be giving an art demo TONIGHT! in front of LOST LEAF!! in Phoenix 5thST. and Roosevelt! N YOU ALL ARE INVITED !!!!

my attention was brought to one artist in particular. His name is Kirk O'Hara, and...  [ READ THIS ARTICLE ON HERE tjosphoto.deviantart.com/ ]
Painting Miracles

Playing in a band and painting artwork isn't as easy as it looks…and for one Valley man…it's a miracle.

Some say it's art. Others call it a gift. But Kirk O'Hara is not your ordinary artist. Imagine playing music and painting without using any arms or legs. Can't is not a word in Kirk's vocabulary. He defies odds despite being born with a rare birth defect leaving him unable to use his arms or legs. It's his talent and passion for art that lives on. His paintings are remarkable. When I first saw him painting with his mouth and the beautiful picture that resulted from it, I was speechless. He uses a lot of colors and paints interesting and unusual designs.
Kirk provides inspiration for everyone he meets. His friend Jesse says he has learned so much from Kirk's talent and outlook on life. Kirk's ability to paint with his mouth allows him to pour his spirit onto the canvas. And when it comes to music…there are no refrains. Kirk plays the hermonica in a band with Jesse who plays the drums. I was amazed with the music they played for me. They play all different types of music from jazz, reggae, punk, rock and metal.
Beating the odds is one thing, Kirk says he hopes to complete 1,000 more paintings by the end of his life.
