This painting was inspired by the novel "Blindness" (Portuguese: Ensaio sobre a cegueira, meaning Essay on Blindness) by José Saramago.


"Arabesque" and Other Paintings Inspired by Literature

My painting Blindness, based on José Saramago's eponymous masterpiece, (originally in Portuguese: Ensaio sobre a cegueira, meaning Essay on Blindness), didn't depict any particular passage of the book; rather, I tried to capture a sense of displacement and bewilderment.
