Dr Walery Siejtbatalow was born on 8 June 1965 in Denisovka. He suffered a cervical spinal injury after jumping from a hill into a river and has been confined to a wheelchair since then. To escape from his loss of mobility, he began writing with a pen in his mouth. Later he hit on the idea of painting and drawing in this way. Consequently, he taught himself. Since 2012, the VDMFK gave him a scholarship.
