Artist Paints What She Hears And Creates Abstract Masterpieces (Photos)

When it comes to creating incredible works of art, there are two types of people in the world

There are those who can feel and then there are those who can actually visualize art with their eyes.

Melissa McCracken is the latter of the two.

As a self-proclaimed synesthete, Melissa is actually able to "see" music and deciphers the sound waves that enter her ears into a beautiful array of flowing colors and patterns.

As you can imagine, this phenomenon is pretty hard to explain to other people, so Melissa uses oil and acrylic to create magnificent paintings that capture the stunning visuals she experiences whenever different songs are played.

All of her paintings look amazing, and when you think about it, it's absolutely mindblowing to know this is what she sees on a daily basis.

Take a look at the photos below to see Melissa's synesthete art series.
