Israeli visual artist and painter Roy Nachum (1979), believes that art should be accessible to everybody, even those who are visually impaired and for this reason his latest work “BLIND" combines painting with Braille signage.
The moment which made the artist re-contextualize his signature pixel technique into Braille, came about a few years ago, when a chance encounter with Braille signage at a museum exhibition forced him to think of new ways in which the blind could possibly experience visual artworks. Until then, he had been utilizing the idea of pixels painted one-by-one to create micro worlds that come together in order to form the pattern of a single reality or of a dream. Most of the themes of his pixelized oil paintings on canvas derive from his brain’s hard disc which is why one could characterize him as a ”digital painter”.
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. All the texts comprise poems written by the artist and inspired by the paintings. via

The AKC decided that their March madness contest wasn’t fair up until the end when corgis went in strong to win it all. So, Corgi Nation, we have to win again. Best 2 of 3, hopefully they don’t change the rules again to best of 5, but it wouldn’t matter — because corgis would win every time.

STUMP THE VOTE! ROCK ON CORGI NATION!
