Help Artist Benny Diar KYT DTC Raise Money for a Handicap Van

By - Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

The Graffiti community is a family, and family supports one another. If you’ve been in this scene for a while or are a newcomer, Benny Diar is a name that most of you recognize. The amount of work he put in on the streets and in the yards is beyond impressive! 

For those of you unfamiliar, Benny was a victim of a terrible car accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down. He’s incredibly lucky to be alive! He was told he would never move, breathe or eat on his own again. After many years of rehabilitation and hard work, he is able to do all of those things again. And as an artist he never gave up painting, continuing to paint with his mouth. 

He recently bought a new wheelchair which helped him gain more independence, now he’s looking for your support to raise money to purchase a wheelchair accessible van to keep him moving forward. He set up a go fund me account to help achieve the goal, and we’d encourage you to help support. With the new van Diar hopes to be able to begin doing some community outreach and speaking with kids about overcoming hardship and staying positive. It takes a giant of a person to turn around the hand Diar has been dealt and find the positive in it. A true king.
