Blind Eye Artist

Ashwin Chaudhary

In March of 2020, artist Justin Wadlington was about to unveil his latest painting, a large-scale self-portrait, when a global pandemic brought the world to a halt. For Justin, adversity was nothing new, and he decided to make the best of the situation by starting another painting in quarantine called “Black American Dream.” The film flashes back to how Justin’s life was changed forever when a tragic accident left him blind in one eye at the age of five. Now as an established artist, Justin seeks to inspire kids who grew up like him to believe that they can do anything they put their minds to.
