Kirk O’Hara uses art as his “gateway to the world”

Kirk O’Hara was born with arthrogryposis, a hereditary condition that limits the use of his arms and legs, so he paints with his mouth. Each brushstroke is made with a flick of his head and neck, with his paintbrush clenched firmly between his teeth. O’Hara was born and raised in Mesa. We will watch O’Hara paint and find out how his condition inspires his art and the message he hopes you see in his very personal artwork. See more of his art on http://kirkohara.com/.
