Serge Maudet was born on February 1, 1954, in Roussay. His hands and legs have been paralysed since birth. Already as a child, his mother taught him to use his mouth and to hold a pencil between his teeth. “I was born with a brush between my teeth. Painting was my first means of expressing me. As a child I painted the things that I could not do and that became the tool for expressing my feelings”, says the artist. Late in life, he decided to dedicate himself fully to drawing. At the age of 22, he received a scholarship from the Association. In 1983 he became a Full Member of the VDMFK. In October 2002 he was elected as the Member of the Board on the occasion of the general meeting in Lisbon.
