Jagwinder Singh

Foot Artist


Jagwinder Singh


Jagwinder Singh was born on 3 April 1991 in Punjab, without both his arms. He and his family had to struggle to get him admitted to a school. Questions about his inability to use hands became the motivation for him to use his feet for writing and other works. He was interested in drawing from his childhood, mostly influenced by his father who is a needleworker. Watching his father do embroidery was his first creative insight. After finishing his school he did a two-year diploma in art and craft.

Jagwinder has won many prizes since his school days in art competitions, in both district and state level. After working as a teacher for more than a year he became a government employee with the soil and water conservation department, Patiala. Jagwinder has his creative flair based in watercolour and pencil sketching. He was part of an art exhibition in Singapore, selling seven of his paintings. Other than being an artist, he is a prospective National Para Cyclist. Jagwinder joined MFPA in 2020.
