Chia Yong Liang was born in 1960. He became a quadraplegic in 1981 due to a diving accident.
He suffered from a stroke in 2007 and was confined to bed and was unable to talk at all. After much persistence and rehabilition, his condition improved and he is able to sit on a wheelchair.
He used to get the set of cards from Mouth & Foot Painting Artist but has never occurred to him that he will be one of the artists one day. In 2010, after an encouragement from his pretty wife, he started to play around with the brushes in his mouth. He was accepted as a student member of MFPA in March 2012.
