Spotlight on Artists on the Autism Spectrum

In honor of April’s Autism Awareness Month, and to celebrate the release of Drawing Autism, edited by Jill Mullin, Akashic put out a call for art submissions — and you answered!

On May 14th, Jill Mullin will receive the inaugural Felix in Art Award given by Extreme Kids & Crew! For more information on Extreme Kids & Crew’s May Soirée (which will be held at Littlefield in Gowanus, Brooklyn), please click here.

Throughout April, we featured selections of the art that has been submitted to us, all created by people diagnosed with autism. We’re pleased to share the second to last round of art today, provided by Remrov.

In Remrov’s words:

My name is Remrov and I have been diagnosed with autism when I was 21 years old. Quite late, especially because I already felt that there was something different about me since I was very little. But when I finally received my diagnosis a lot of puzzle piece suddenly fell into place . . . I make very photorealistic pencil drawings and pen drawings. Because of my autism I see the whole world in tiny little details, my artwork tends to be this way too, very precise and detailed. If you want to see more of my artwork, maybe you would like to visit my website: http://www.remrovsartwork.com

Thanks very much to Remrov for sharing this great art with us!
