The Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists of the World, registered society, (VDMFK) supports artists who, due to disability or disease, cannot create their works of art with their hands, but have to use their mouths or their feet. From a small group of 18 mouth and foot painting artists, the VDMFK developed over the course of the years into an association which is active worldwide and already represented in 74 countries of the world with currently about 726 artists.
The milestones of this worldwide active association are described under "Timeline“. Its 50-year existence was duly celebrated in 2007 in Austria's capital city, Vienna.
You can find out how to join the association under the menu items "Scholarships" and "Membership". All mouth and foot painting artists who belong to the association worldwide, are listed under "Artists worldwide". Gain an insight into the life and creative work of these people who achieve outstanding artistic work despite their partly severe physical disabilities.
A short film portrait has been produced about some of our artists which you can look at via the website. Have a look at the "Film portrait list", it is being constantly expanded. It is well worth visiting here again and again!
