 Martin Vogel uses every tool available to him to speak to humanity’s spirit through his art, including his wheelchair. Martin’s first life abruptly ended on a hairpin turn on the Infinion Raceway in Sonoma, California. A T3 spinal cord injury left him paralyzed from the chest down. One day, while looking down at some tracks his wheelchair wheels had left in the dirt, he began applying paint to his wheels. That soon grew into an obsession and he began customizing his wheels in order to create interesting shapes, and began painting in earnest. His wheelchair became his brush to creates abstract paintings that sometimes show upf natural motifs like birds, fish and stars. The result is a brilliant representation of motion.
