Mumbai has always been called the city of opportunity, where talent is given its due. Starting today, the city will host a live painting performance cum exhibition organised by the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA) Association.

The USP will be the artists' achievements irrespective of their hardships. The artists who will be a part of this initiative include Bandenawaz, who was born with the defect of both upper limbs and has won many laurels for his paintings.
He has also won several gold and silver medals at national and international swimming championships for the disabled. There's also 45-year-old Ramakrishnan, a zealous personality who is orthopedically handicapped and has cerebral palsy.
Yet he is passionate about experimenting with colours. Another artist, Nadeem Riyasat Ali Shaikh, who was born without both hands has successfully passed the 10th standard by writing his examination with his foot.
Till April 4, 12 pm to 8 pm
At Oberoi Garden City, off Western Express Highway, Goregaon (E).
