Representing a dedication to accessible art, the 'Blind' Series by Roy Nachum is visually striking.

These oil paintings are highly realistic in their attention to detail. Superb technical ability is displayed by the artist, who was educated at Cooper Union and Bezalel Academy in Israel. He has earned merit and praise from high-profile fans like singer Justin Timberlake and Topshop mogul Sir Philip Green.

His work utilizes hyper-real canvas paintings that feature braille. The tactile aspect of Roy Nachum's work is for the visually impaired to read poetic descriptions of each painting so as to have his work enjoyed by people from all walks of life. The idea of accessible art is not only groundbreaking, but also makes for a stunning display of inventive art in the oil and canvas worlds.
