Around 10 percent of the total world's population, or roughly 650 million people, live with a disability according to Disability Statistics’ annual report. Looking at the art pieces on this list you couldn’t tell that they were created by someone with adversity, often with tremendous amounts of effort and time.

From artists painting with their mouths to blind photographers - these people are a truly an inspiration. Living with conditions most can’t even imagine, they often use art as a way to communicate with the world. For some people here, that is the only way of communication they have.

To celebrate these incredibly strong-willed people, Bored Panda compiled a list showing off their artwork. Check out these astounding artists, we hope you find the stories of these beautiful people motivating!

Oh man I understand this artist so much aha, once you've got that vision in your head, you've just got to find a way to get it on paper. Amazing determination though, it's easy to give up during the first half of a project once you're starting to see it come together but it's still got so much work to do haha.... And to do it without hands, like, wow!
