Blind Artist in Nanhai Park

Blind artists are people who are physically unable to see normally, yet work in the visual arts. This seeming contradiction is overcome when one understands that only around 10% of all people with blindness can see absolutely nothing at all. As such most blind people can in fact perceive some level of light and form, and it is by applying this limited vision that many blind artists create intelligible art. It must also be remembered that a blind person may once have been fully sighted and yet simply lost part of their vision through injury or illness.
