Esref Armagan: The Blind Painter

Eşref Armağan (born 1953) is a blind Turkish painter. He was born blind to a poor family. He taught himself how to write and paint. In 2008, Harvard scientists studied his brain and found out that the visual cortex copes and does a different function for blind people. He is married with two kids, and has had 20 exhibitions in different countries.
