Kaleidoscope – I

We at Lockdown Voices are happy on completing 50 days of daily posts. We convey our gratitude to all our contributors and supporters. To mark this occasion, we are organising an online exhibition of art and innovative work created during the lockdown, by children and adults with special needs. Today we open the first part of this exhibition.

Swamy at work

Swami is 34 years old under ASD. He has shown a proclivity to draw geometric shapes and lines from a very young age. He appears to prefer a photo or a picture to copy from, and gives it his unique visual perceptual slant. His artworks have appeared on Viswanathan Anand’s visiting cards and letterheads, on the walls of Ashok Leyland’s new corporate office at Guindy, Chennai, on the popcorn tubs of Satyam cinemas, and more. You can also see him working on his art here.
