Inspirations: Tommy Hollenstein
TOMMY HOLLENSTEIN - Tommy Hollenstein is an artist from Southern California. He creates unique and vibrant paintings by using the wheels of his electric wheelchair instead of a brush. The idea of becoming an artist was a dream of his since childhood, but it was only after a 1985 mountain bike accident left him a quadriplegic, did he embark on fulfilling that ambition. Tommy Hollenstein is today an internationally recognized artist that often lends support to causes and charitable organizations such as in the bottom video where musicians such as Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, and Slash literately lend a "helping hand" in creating a painting to be sold to raise funds in support of Shanes Inspiration.
