Autistic artists express themselves

A gallery in Discover Magazine shows off different artwork created by autistic people. People with autism are often reported to be very visually dominant, and experience the world through sight more than their other senses, so this is a great idea to ask autistic people to artistically express how they see the world.

From Discover Magazine:

“The work can be a comfort and relief to people longing to express themselves, and can also help others understand the mental processes of autism. A new book of art compiles by Jill Mullin, Drawing Autism, rounds up many remarkable examples of work by people from all across the autistic spectrum.”
