Best. Thing. Ever. Art unleashed.
Dark Angel One has an inspiring vision which is notable since he is legally blind with about 90% of his vision either gone, or damaged. His art is the epitome of tribute/fan art where he locates works that he admires greatly and animates them. Often he pairs these with music videos. All of it is completely non commercial.
Dark Angel also known as Red Hawk does not charge for his work ever. He credits when he can find the photographer. His deepest wish it to pay tribute to their talent and draw attention to the works.
“Finding people who did photo manipulation and .gif animation intrigued me, and I began to self teach myself these techniques in an attempt to duplicate the world as I was viewing it through my damaged sight. Along the way I found some pretty cool effects and techniques of manipulation.
The beauty of art saved my life. I was in a very bad place when I began my journey into blindness, it was the love of art that kept me going, and to be included and accepted by so many extremely talented artists, and accepted into their community still overwhelms me. This is all the compensation I could ever ask for.”
