Eşref Armağan can paint beautiful landscapes, but is blind and has never seen the light of day.

March 25, 2013

Eşref Armağan, 41, is an artist and family man out of Turkey. What makes him truly amazing is the fact that he was born without eyes yet can still paint amazing landscapes without ever seeing the light of day. Neuroscientists at Harvard were fascinated by Esref and his ability but more importantly his ability to understand scale and perspective (as seen in the paintings). After a series of tests they discovered that visual response regions of Esref’s brain that shouldn’t be active were actually very active. This discovery revealed to the world that our senses are far more connected and powerful than we originally thought. Esref might not be equivalent of Ben Affleck in Daredevil but he is certainly an amazing human that the world needs to know about! Check out his website:
