Antonio Davis is a talented painter with a true gift.

In 1994, a gunshot wound to the chest left him quadriplegic, he could no longer use his arms.

However, that didn't stop him from attending the Art Institute of Chicago where he learned to draw and paint with his mouth.

Davis is showcasing his talents tomorrow, October 6 at the Hyde Park Art Center from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.
