My autistic non-verbal brother Samko recently turned 18, so I decided to document his journey into becoming an adult and reaching a higher level of independence on his creative journey as an artist who is using colors not only to express himself but also bring the message into this world of compassion, acceptance, inclusivity, diversity, and uniqueness.
His workflow is beautifully transforming as he goes with the flow of his emotions, feelings, yet we can't read his mind. He can't say what he feels. He can only show us. He can be seen and heard even when he says no words.
