Painting: BLIND

"Trust" by Israeli artist Roy Nachum 

Israeli artist Roy Nachum believes that art should be accessible to everybody, even those who are visually impaired.  For that reason his latest works, collectively called the “BLIND” series, combine painting with Braille signage. The series was inspired by a chance encounter with braille signage at a museum exhibition that forced him to think of new ways in which the blind could possibly experience visual art.

Nachum’s photo realistic oil paintings illustrate surrealistic images of a fantasy realm which employ Braille and a “double vision” technique that challenges those with sight to question the limitations of their vision.
