An Agent Orange victim born with a silver brush in his mouth
Le Minh Chau was born with stunted limbs that are almost non-functional, but the artist in him could not be denied. Armed with just basic art training, the 28-year-old artist who uses his mouth to paint is self-taught. Chau, subject of the Oscar-nominated "Chau, Beyond the Lines" movie, has been inspiration for many disabled people.
