My name is Benny, known in the graffiti world as DIAR. I have been an artist my whole life. I started writing graffiti at the age of 11, and was an active writer until February 2008, when a bad car accident left me paralyzed from the neck down.
Medical problems from the accident almost killed me 10+ times in the weeks following my accident. I am very thankful to still be alive and have been working very hard to regain as much of my independence as possible. Throughout my recovery, I have remained dedicated to art, exploring other mediums. I have started to use acrylics and I paint using my mouth to control the brush.
