Esref Armagan - The Artist With No Eyes

Born unsighted and to an impoverished Turkish family, Esref Armagan never received any formal schooling or training. He has never seen light and imagines shapes he already felt. This amazingly gifted man has made history by demonstrating that for the first time, a blind person can develope his/her own pictorial skills the equal of most depiction by the sighted.

Isn't it incredible? Our human brains have been created with such possibilities. An enlightening post.

Hubs and I are heading to the States this morning for a weekend away together. See you next week.

Wow his ability is absolutely amazing, Something no one has yet mentioned is his affinity for color.
The coolest thing is that he has shown how brain is able to imagine without seeing.

Wow! This is incredibly amazing. I wonder how he can tell what color he is using and what color a color is, or what color something should be, since he's never seen colors.

Grace said...

I've seen him in the past on the news and he is astounding. The fact that he uses the correct colors is amazing.
