Painting by Touch

Below are some of the most captivating paintings I’ve seen.  The colors pull me into the image and capture my imagination.  Here’s the catch.  They were painted by John Bramblitt, who lost his vision 13 years ago due to complications with epilepsy.

Bramblitt learned to distinguish between different colored paints by their textures.  Using raised lines and haptic visualization, he is able to “see.”  He has even produced paintings of people he’s never actually seen like his wife and son.

Whoa.
