Artistic and Autistic An Exhibition at King’s College London (Postponed due to COVID-19)

Artistic and Autistic is an exhibition of work by autistic artists and explores what Autism means to them. As the exhibition has been postponed I have decided to showcase details of the prints ‘The Space Separating’ rather than the full images.

I gained a formal diagnosis in 2016 after receiving counselling in response to stress. I soon realised that the stress and anxiety I was feeling was provoked by having an ‘atypical neurology’ or ‘different’ brain function in a ‘neurotypical’ world.
