Yusmany Risquet (blind). Musician, composer and singer. He expresses the colors through the music he composes, that is to say, he creates scores to the colors inspired by the impressions felt through the pictorial works exhibited in the exhibition Proverbs. The project “Otras Miradas” opened for this young man a door to the world of color, as he himself has expressed.
He obtains several national prizes in the interpretation of his own subjects, such as the First Prize at the Festival of the National Association of the blind and visually impaired (ANCI) 2011
Musical composition entitled: “Esperanza-al color verde” (Hope- to the green color.)
Mario Ernesto Romero (blind). From the age of 20 to 25 he was actively painting, doing pen works and managing to expose them in different galleries, also publishing his works in the book of poetry for children, “La Noche.” He then continues to work with a low vision expressed in strong color reflections such as intense red. He can currently see those color reflections quickly and suddenly.
The “Otras Miradas” Project, reopened his artistic expectations and above all the possibility of continuing to paint
Artworks Before, (With low vision)
artworks After, (Without vision)
José Miguel Ramos (Blind.) He dreamed of being a painter, but at the age of 13 loses eye sight. So he begins to dump all his lyricism in poetry and to find his pictorial world in the verses.
The “Otras Miradas” Project is a way to realize his dream of painting, because the rhymes that in his heart existed as strokes, are now a reality on the canvas painted by other hands.
He has received national and international prizes in poetry, such as: 2nd prize in the Tiflos contest (Spain), 1st place in the contest organized by the Latin American Blind Union (Uruguay). He also wrote an Anecdotes’ Booklet that was awarded in the contest “Humor para ciegos “, (Spain).
