The foot-painter Nakhon Wattanadilok was born in Bangkok on 30 march 1964 without arms. Due to lack of financial means and because of his inability to hold pencil and paper Mr. Wattanadilok could not attend the primary school. Soon however, the foot-painter learned to use his feet for writing and painting. After one year already Mr. Wattanadilok painted watercolours. Since May 1990 Mr. Wattanadilok, together with a small group of students, has been taking painting lessons with a noted artist in Bangkok.
