Art is the cultural deposits of mankind and a reflection of inspirations; Art is an expression of emotions and a quest for self-realization. From the musical notes spring the inner melody; from the colors of a painting triggars the memory of the shore beyond that we call home. It turns out that what touches us most is not the splendid appearance, but a sense of familiarity that has been there for a long time.

Blind Artist John Bramblitt: Seeing Life in a Different Light

John Bramblitt was born in 1971 in El Paso, Texas, USA, and his art has been sold in over a hundred and twenty countries. According to CNN, John Bramblitt believes he could draw before he could walk, and possessing a photographic memory proved invaluable to him later in life when he lost his eyesight. Besides drawing, painting, and illustrating, he also loves sharing written stories with friends and family. Drawing and painting became the best ways to cope with his frequent visits to the hospital in childhood.
