Antonio Davis was born on March 24, 1975 in Chicago. Antonio’s passion has always been art. He loved drawing and painting from youth. He studied graphic design at Prosser Vocational High school in Chicago.
In 1994, he sustained a gunshot wound to the chest that left him quadriplegic. Despite no longer being able to walk again, he was devastated that he lost the use of his hands. In 1996 Antonio moved to a nursing home facility to further his rehabilitation, physical therapy and occupational therapy. To his surprise, art therapy was offered as daily recreation. He was encouraged by a friend to start drawing again, this time by holding the pen in his mouth.
In 1997 he was able to find an apartment with then girlfriend Juanita. Now with his own residency he focused his talent on art immersing himself in all mediums, even attending the Illinois Institute of Art where he learned life drawing, color theory, and 3D modeling. Subsequently, while visiting a Disability Expo he met Robert Thome, MFPA (Mouth & Foot Painters Association) full member artist who inspired and encouraged Antonio to develop his skills as a mouth painter. He also advised him to submit his work to MFPA to be considered for student membership. In 2006 he was granted a scholarship from MFPA to further develop his talent as a mouth painter.
Antonio’s paintings have received worldwide recognition and the MFPA, has reproduced numerous painting of his. Through art he has found a purpose. With the help of MFPA he has been able to get his art out to the public and remain financially independent. He is determined to inspire people and prove that they can overcome any obstacle, no matter the fear or limitation.
“The path to fulfilling my dreams has been unique and filled with many great mentors. Art in Motion is yet another exciting opportunity for me. I am thankful that RIC’s Art Therapy and Therapeutic Recreation programs are now available to encourage others like myself to pursue interests they never thought possible.”
‘’If there’s a will there’s a way, and the cave you fear to venture into holds your treasure…”
