She turns Braille into art!
Chhattisgarh-based artist Vijaya Chauhan found her creative spark in 2008 in two of her blind roommates when she noticed how different their lifestyle was from that of other people, and the importance of Braille text.
She used Braille imprints on various mediums like terracotta, ceramic, wood, metal and stone. Her first work was a culpture made of wood and painted iron and resembled a paper printer.
Braille text is also the theme of her camp that is currently going on in Delhi’s Tihar Jail. Through her Braille works, Vijaya wants to create a dialogue with the spectator. She also wants to make art for the blind through Braille.
