Painting Method: Mouth painter
Jerzy Galos was born in 1964 in Kossowa. When he was 28, he had an accident (diving) which left him a quadriplegic. He lives in Krakow. His first mouth painting was created 7 years after the accident. He is happiest painting with oils, watercolours and tempera. Landscapes are his favourite theme and he also paints still life, flowers and animals.
He has been cooperating with the ‘Amun’ Publishing House since 1999.
In May 2004, I went to an open-air art project in Wisła with a group of foot and mouth painting artists for the first time, which was a tremendous experience. I was able to make some wonderful friends, people who gave me warmest of welcomes to their group.
The painting workshops were run very professionally, under the masterly eye of an artist from Poznań, Andrzej Grzelachowskiego, aka "AG".
