This artist creates beautiful looping GIFs even though he’s legally blind


Using computer software, designer and artist George Redhawk, has created these absolutely stunning images. The looped GIFs are beautifully haunting, and even more incredible when you discover that George is legally blind.

According to The Creators Project, George lost his sight suddenly, which left his life and career in shambles. In a bid to take in all the beauty in the world that he could while he was still able to see, George created these breathtaking images.

George has Charles Bonnet syndrome which causes those who have lost a lot of their vision to have "visual hallucinations" and see things that aren't really there says

His work is called The World Through My Eyes as he feels the morphing still motion is a rather apt way of conveying his view of the world. And isn’t that what art is all about after all?

Have a look at these. They will blow your mind.
