2001 for the American artist John Bramblitt became critical. After another attack of epilepsy John lost his sight. Since then, his eyes can distinguish only light and darkness. And his only salvation from despair was drawing. John has developed his own style: he uses texture paint, and which focuses on the canvas.
While art was always a major part of John’s life it was not until he lost his sight in 2001 that he began to paint, and it was then that he says, “Art reshaped my life.” John’s paintings are intensely personal, and are mostly taken from real people and events in his life. John’s workshops are unique in the art world in that they not only span the gap between beginning and professional artists, but also include adaptive techniques for people with disabilities. According to John, “Everyone has an artist somewhere in them; sometimes they just need a little help letting it out.”
