Mouth Artist



Born with a rare congenital condition known as Arthrogyposis Multiplex Congenita that has almost paralyzed both her limbs, Srilekha Mandallapalli is confined to a wheelchair and requires help with all her daily chores. Born on 8th June 1982, in Hyderabad, despite her tragic health condition, Srilekha’s love for art developed at a very young age but her disability never stopped her from becoming an accomplished mouth painter.


After completing her graduation in 2003, she started fabric painting soon after and graduated in oil painting in 2007. Her main aim is to motivate and help others with disabilities like herself and she also conducts Motivational workshops at Institutes, Schools and Corporates. From her love for art, she started Art classes for kids of all age groups. Srilekha has been a member of MFPA since 2013.
