George RedHawk – Blind Art
George RedHawk is a blind artist who creates art that takes your breath away. Born in California he creates GIF Art Sensations. But he did not always do this. Previously he taught medicine until he suddenly lost his sight forcing him to give up his profession again just four years later.
Drawing attention was never his intention – art was just a way to express how it feels to lose your sight. 12 years ago George RedHawk went blind and has devoted himself to art ever since. The movement in his pictures gives his subjects a surreal effect. With the help of a computer program and special vision aids he turns his view of the world outwards. “It is an artistic expression of the bewilderment I experience from losing my sight!” George RedHawk once remarked in an interview.
He presents his special works under the name “DarkAngelOne”! George will also be showcasing some of his GIFs at the forthcoming edition of CPM in August/September.
