Colors of the Wind – The Story of Blind Artist and Champion Runner George Mendoza
George Mendoza has been legally blind since the age of 15 and he paints what he sees. He has a very rare form of blindness, called fundus flavimaculatus, which destroyed his central vision but left him with limited peripheral vision.
He refers to it as “kaleidoscope eyes” because of the way objects are reflected back and multiplied in his vision. Such an amazing and wonderful story! We really enjoyed learning about George Mendoza!
