John Bramblitt is a talented artist, but not just talented like many others. He is truly one of a kind.
John Bramblitt is blind, but he is able to create incredibly beautiful paintings without even seeing the colors he is using.
He hasn’t always been blind, he has suffered from epileptic seizures since he was a kid. Epileptic seizures can lead to blindness in extremely rare occasions, and this is exactly what happened to John.
What’s incredibly special about him is that he is literally able to see colors with his hands. He doesn’t use brushes to create his art, but his fingers.
He uses them as an extension of his eyes and thanks to his hands he is able to feel the painting while he is creating it. He also uses his sense of touch to recognize the various colors, thanks to the different tactile feedback every color gives.
This is John Bramblitt. He is a blind artist.
His blindness has been caused by epileptic seizures, an extremely rare event.
