2001 American artist John Bramblitt (John Bramblitt) was a turning point. After another attack of epilepsy John lost his eyesight. Since the eye can only distinguish light and dark. And his only salvation from despair began drawing. John has developed his own style: he uses paint, which focuses on the canvas.
We have chosen the 10 best art works, which is worthy of special admiration.
2001 was a great year for John's new page in his career the artist.
"The idea that it is possible to draw without a vision, never crossed my mind."
"A year after I went blind, I started to think that it is possible to do to start a painting."
"Basically, the sense of touch replaces me everything I do for sighted eyes of the artist."
"In fact eye for an artist perform two functions: help to identify the location of the object on the canvas and choose a color."
"Over time I was able to develop several methods to lines on canvas laid down more accurately".
"All the bottles and tubes of paint in my Studio signed in Braille. For mixing I use a recipe that is measure various parts of each desired color to get the right shade. This is how to use recipe for baking a cake."
"On their first exhibitions I didn't tell people about his blindness".
"Not because I was ashamed, but because I didn't want it to affect their perception of my art".
Blindness for the artist may be the final point in his career. But not for John Bramblitt. Loss of vision, on the contrary, helped to reveal its brilliance and infinite possibilities of his talent.
