VIDEO: Thieves steal artwork and supplies from an armless artist

Posted: Updated:

(KHQ.COM)- A community is rallying around an armless artist who was the target of thieves. Michael Davenport is a street artist. He uses his mouth to draw, and a metal hook to gather his art supplies.

Davenport was working outside a grocery store when he decided to step inside to use the restroom. He left his art supplies outside for a few minutes and when he came back, they were gone. Four paintings, a new set of markers, and a number of finished sketches were stolen.

Davenport says he lost an estimated $400 worth of supplies which is a pretty big financial blow for someone with continuing medical issues living in an extended stay hotel. Now, people in his community are helping Davenport get back on his feet.
