This Artist Is Completely Blind, But How He Paints His Subjects Is Remarkable
Epilepsy is a terrible condition that causes the brain to produce an abnormal amount of nerve activity. Unfortunately, the brain cannot handle the excessive work and the result is a neurological seizure. Typically, these are extremely traumatic events that can result in brain injuries, strokes and tumors. John Bramblitt is an accomplished artist, but after seeing his work you would never have guessed that he is blind. In 2001, he suddenly became blind after suffering a series of seizures, resulting from having epilepsy. The then 30-year-old fell into a deep depression and started to try painting as a way to cope. You will be shocked when you see just how talented he has become.
