Blind Artist first to see 2010 S60

26 10 2009

Turkish artist Esref Armagan is renowned throughout the world for his unique feel for perspective and shape. He was the very first non-employee to be invited to Volvo Cars in Sweden to see and paint the still-secret new Volvo S60. Although the car will not be launched until 2010, Volvo is already revealing his interpretation on Facebook.

But there is an exciting twist to the story: Esref Armagan is blind.
