Thread: Blind Painter
October 11th, 2007 #1Ellingsworth Guest
Pretty cool video, it's awesome that he now has a happy and fulfilling life and that he can paint, though he is blind. Best wishes to him.
Not sure if this has been posted, I have used the "search" button but nothing came up for it, sorry in advance if it has. Also, I'm not sure how old this video is. I can't find a date any place on the video.

October 11th, 2007 #5I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

would he get someone else to make up his canvases? i'm thinking theyre photographs that have been posterized and then the edges of the colours are picked out by some sort of latex or raised medium, giving him the ability to feel around the picture, get an idea of what it is, then paint in the colours accordingly? or is it impressioned onto the canvas? either way, amazing stuff

The story was pretty lacking in details, but there's a lot of info on his site.

Thanks for the link, Elwell.
Dile: This is from his site:

The visual arts for non visual people: What’s the point?
I was angry when I lost my sight. Painting seemed a way of shoving my disability right back in the face of God, or nature, or whatever. Funny how things seem to right themselves though. Through painting I found a calmness that I had not known since before my vision had gone.

that's some pretty neat stuff. considering the fact that he's blind i find it amazing enough that he can distinguish between colors and values.
here's a link to his process for anyone who's interested. Apparently he actually draws the raised lines toopld:
