Imagine hearing your heartbeat but also seeing it in vivid colour.

For 21-year old Irish artist, Jack Coulter hearing sound in colour is the reality he's seeped in as he suffers synesthesia - a rare neurological condition where stimulation of one sense creates an impression by another sense, like hearing a noise and seeing it manifested in color.

While Coulter's condition causes him to interpret sound in vivid colour, for others with a similar condition there is an ability to taste color or feel music brushing against their bodies.

In an interview with Huffington Post, Coulter revealed that if he is not creating art, he's dead inside, adding that he "craves art".
