Project Helps Disabled Individuals Create Paintings with Their Brain
The Mind Art Project combines art and science to help raise awareness and support for the handicapped population
The Census Bureau reports that as of 2010, nearly 57 million people in the U.S. had some form of disability. And in China, the world’s most populous nation, it’s estimated that there are roughly 83 million handicapped individuals.
In an attempt to raise awareness of the everyday struggles of the disabled population, while earning recognition and respect for these individuals, Chinese artist Jody Xiong teamed up with acrylic paint supplier Winsor & Newton to help these individuals create art.
