John BramblittJohn is a blind artist living in Denton, Texas. He lost the last of his vision in 2001 due to complications with epilepsy and Lyme's disease. He then discovered painting and learned to distinguish between different colored paints by feeling their textures with his fingers. He taught himself how to paint using raised lines to help him find his way around the canvas, and through something called haptic visualization, which enables him to "see" his subjects through touch. He now paints amazingly lifelike portraits of people he's never seen--including his wife and son.
He has sold his work in over 120 different countries and is quickly becoming a household name all around the world. Some of his original pieces have auctioned for over $30,000 in America and now his work is becoming more and more sort after in the art world. He has appeared internationally in print, TV and radio. He has appeared on CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, ABC, NBC, FOX, Discovery Channel and BBC Radio and TV, plus he's been featured in The New York Times and Psychology Today. He's the subject of the award winning documentary shorts "Line of Sight' and “Bramblitt.” He was also awarded the ‘Most Inspirational Video of 2008′ from YouTube.
