Artist Who Has Synesthesia Paints Music And The Wonderful Play Of Colors Is One Of The Best Things We Have Seen!


Melissa McCracken is an artist based in Missouri and is a synesthete, due to which, the sounds she hears daily irrespective of the sound type it is; gets translated into vibrant and beautiful colors that are translated based on the tune of the music. McCracken decided to make music tangible by making vivid paintings so that he gets to capture her daily experience with music.

It was only when McCracken turned 15 that she realized that not everyone see colors in the same hue-rich manner that she has been ever since she was born.

Synesthesia is a cross-wiring of the brain and as a result, it is apparently a wrong sensation to certain types of stimuli. She does not see it as a malfunction, as the music she hears flows into hues, textures and movements, with each element of the song resulting in one pattern.

She started painting her wonderful sights with texture and splashes of polychrome light. Scroll down to take a look at the wonderful nature of work of Melissa McCracken.
