The Incredible JOHNNY ECK

Johnny Eck was a true original. Born with a condition called Sacral agenesis, giving him the appearance of being missing the lower half of his body, Johnny became an accomplished acrobat, sideshow performer, actor and artist. The medium he worked in most was paint, and he became well known for a form unique to his native Baltimore, a form known as screen painting. Eck never let his condition become a disability. He was always known to meet the world with his dazzling smile. You can learn more about Johnny at
