Esref Armagan

Armagan is a blind painter- born unsighted and to an impoverished family. Armagan was never educated and taught himself to write and print.  He draws and paints using his hands and oil paints.  Using a braille stylus, Armagan etches an outline of his drawing so he an feel “inside” his painting first.  When researching blind art, I was particularly interested in this artist because his method of creation is very different.  Although he cannot see his work, he can feel it, which gives him an understanding of what he is doing.
