Fernando Omar Flores was born on 27 April 1984 in Paso de la Patria (Corrientes), Argentina. Due to an accident in February 2000 he suffered a traumatic complete lesion of the spinal cord - also called secondary spastic tetraplegia - which means that he has no use of arms or legs. In February 2011 he began to paint and draw with the mouth; he is an autodidact. He is very enthusiastic and has been able to make steady progress. The artist's themes are proof of great creativity and artistic motivation.
