Withy King supports Mouth & Foot Painting Artist Keith Jansz
For the month of June, Withy King’s Oxford office is hosting an exhibition for the artist Keith Jansz, who is a member artist of the Mouth & Foot Painting Artists.
Nearly 20 years ago, Keith suffered a broken neck in a tragic car accident which resulted in complete paralysis from his shoulders down. He started painting shortly after his accident and was accepted as a Student Artist by the international self help organisation, the Mouth & Foot Painting Artists. Keith’s paintings have sold worldwide and he has solo exhibited in the UK and Italy as well as having his paintings exhibited in Lisbon, Madrid, Copenhagen, Shanghai and the States.
The exhibition began with an exclusive private view for Withy King clients and contacts on the 4 June, which saw a number of paintings sold.
Ian Carrier, partner in Withy King's Personal Injury team in Oxford, commented, “My colleagues and I met Keith in London recently at an event in aid of the Spinal Injuries Association which Withy King supports through the sponsorship of their peer support workers. We were tremendously impressed with his talent and his inspirational approach to his work. I would encourage anyone with an interest in art to pop into our offices on New Inn Hall Street to see Keith’s work.”
