Typing King

Esref Armaga is an exceptionally talented artist from Turkey. What sets him apart is he was born without eyes.

Esref, from an early age, had a better grasp of perspective and proportion than many sighted artists, which based on everything science knows about sight, should have been absolutely impossible.
As a visual artist, I found it very difficult to accept and understand that a man without eyes could paint accurate and beautiful landscapes, even seascapes, without ever having "seen" them.

The video's slightly long but absolutely worth watching.
