Go to: John Bramblitt artist's page.
A great story. John Bramblitt is blind. He went blind after suffering epilepsy and slowly over a number of years his sight deteriorated. He paints by feeling the different texture weights of the paints on the canvas. John is affected by Synesthesia, he sees colours in his head when he tastes things and uses these colours for inspiration with his painting. John loves Coke he drinks it to keep going in his studio. A can of Coke painted by touch alone.
