Paralyzed artist Benny ‘DIAR’ Boggs paints PBR G scale model train by mouth

I don’t do many, if any graffiti on model trains much anymore. I was invited to be featured in “The Art of Transportation” art show Crewest Gallery in Los Angeles. It was a good fit because before being paralyzed, I am most known for painting freight trains that travel throughout North America. Since being paralyzed I have painted a decent amount of model trains with acrylics by mouth but have since been concentrating on painting portraits. I painted this model train because I wanted to have something new for the show that hadn’t been seen before. I had a couple of my caregivers film me and I spent the last couple days editing this video. Visit for photos, videos, and links about my recovery and paintings. Visit for more information and pictures of the show.
