Artist Mariusz Kedzierksi creates incredibly realistic paintings.

But what makes Mariusz’ art really exceptional is that he was born with no arms, and draws his portraits using his chin to balance the pencil.

For the last eight years, the 23-year-old has spent 15,000 hours drawing over 700 pieces of art.

He wrote on Bored Panda: “For me disability doesn’t mean that I can’t live my own, great life. It doesn’t mean that I have to forget my dreams.”

He has participated in various exhibitions across the globe, and even won second place in the ‘Best Global Artist’ award of 2013 in Vienna.

But in more recent times he’s been stateside, creating his art on the streets of New York.

He wrote on Bored Panda: “I want to inspire people, show them that all the limits are in our heads.”

Is it time for you to pick up the paint brush?
