Painter whose art found its fullest expression after he became blind.
It was in his mid thirties that the British artist Sargy Mann started to go blind, due to cataracts present in both of his eyes. But he has carried on his life’s work as a talented painter in spite of this. This perseverance has paid off and his canvases regularly sell for upwards of £50,000. He has stated that before he went completely blind he defined himself as a landscape painter, but since then, his artworks have become more complex and mysterious.
