Chinese artist Jody Xiong lies behind another art project. This time, his purpose is to help people with disabilities paint pieces of art, something that they could only imagine and of course wanted so much. The famous street artist, group creative director, graphic designer -famous for his Mac Donald’s campaign for the 2008 Olympics- chose 16 handicapped people to participate via social media. Their chosen paint colors by Winsor & Newton were placed in balloons equipped with tiny detonators. By concentrating hard, electronic signals from their brains were captured and sent to a NeuroSky processing unit that triggered the detonators. Which resulted in wonderfully abstract paintings. From the painting auction, the money were offered to disabled charities.
