Igor Roberto Farina Jardim was born in Santo André on 1 January 1997. Due to a congenital cerebral palsy he is permanently paralysed and cannot use his upper limbs. In addition, his feet suffer from talipes equinus (club foot). After the death of his father, he lived in a refuge for homeless and abandoned children, the "Casa LAR Renascer", for a fairly long time. Igor Roberto Farina Jardim already embarked on his first attempts to paint and draw with his left foot as a child. Gonçalo Borges (Associate Member) recommended Igor Roberto Farina Jardim to the Association. As a result, ever since 2013, he has devoted himself intensively foot painting and was able to make considerable artistic progress.
