The Man with No Eyes (Blind Artist)
Esref is a blind painter, blind from birth. He has never been able to see nor understand colors as seeing people do. He has never been able to see the magic light at sunset nor the beauty of a flowering meadow in the spring. The stubborn persistence mixed with his unique genius has given Esref the voice to express himself and “the eyes to see with.”
”What Esref and the blindfold studies show us,” he says, is that lacking sight, the brain draws on information from the other senses. ”Even in the absence of vision,” he says, ”the visual cortex is involved in creating images.”
