My name is Mariusz Konrad Kędzierski and I was born 10 November 1992. I am a Polish artist and motivational speaker born without arms. I was born and live in Świdnica.
My talent was discovered when I was just 3. I was drawing and painting up to the age of 12 when I had to stop for a few years, but after one of my surgeries at the end of 2008, I started again.
From that time I continue my art, most of which are portraits. My drawings are sold in many countries, from the USA, Great Britain to South Korea. One of my works has also appeared on the cover of a CD in the United States.I am self taught but have studied at The E. Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw at the faculty of Interior Design just for 3 months. I am also ward of the Polish Association of Janusz Korczak.
In October 2013 I got 2nd Prize Best Global Artist Award Vienna 2013.
In December 2015 I got Audience Award of „Man Without Barriers” 2015 in Poland.
‚Mariusz Draws’ (in Polish „Mariusz Rysuje”) is motivational project which I have opened in March 2015. The first part of this project was my travel around the Europe. During 17 days of this adventure I was drawing on the streets of Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Paris, Barcelona, Marseille, Venice, Rome and Athens. I was travelling with mapi.pl team of Piotr Maczkowski who was shooting a documentary about ‚Mariusz Draws’ and about me and my life. Together we PASSED over 12.000 km, RECORDED mamy hours of video, INSPIRED thousands of people and I HAVE DONE one special portrait.
‚One, two, three. You need just 3 seconds to get to know another person. When you look at Mariusz’s passion for art that he creates new drawings with, you can understand that his great dreams completly absorb him. Therefore, cooperation with Mariusz is based on mutual support and understanding.’
What a beautiful and gifted soul!
If you ever feel like saying ‚I can’t’, look at Mariusz Kedzierski and his passion for life, and then open up your eyes to your own potential hidden within you. Mariusz, you have my respect and admiration!
I have been dealing with motivational speaking for over three years. During this time I talked to thousands of people and inspired much more people from all around the world. I have not read about motivation in books and nobody told me about how to change life or the way of thinking. I had to find out about it on my own. My knowledge is based on my observations and experience. If you want me to talk to your friends or employees, feel free to contact me.
