Autistic Savant Artist, Author and Advocate
With no formal instruction in art, Michael relies on his Asperger’s-mind to create his prolific works of art.
Until his mid-fifties, Michael was unaware of his autism. In 2015 and at the age of fifty-eight, he was formally diagnosed.
During his short-painting-career (less than 5 years) he has painted more than eight hundred gallery-worthy paintings.
Regardless of its size, paintings are usually completed in less than an 120 minutes.
As a result, Michael is reluctant to take credit for his work, believing his autism is actually the artist within him.
Michael’s artworks are globally collected and sought after.
