A little bit about the Artist
Diagnosed with autism from the age of 2 and nonverbal until age 3, Ahmad Danial bin Ahmad Kushairi who is fondly known as Danial Kushairi, rediscovered his talent in drawing and painting at the age of 16. His talent in drawings went dormant for many years since his parents decided to focus on his therapies and school activities.
As for most people in the autism spectrum, Danial Kushairi has trouble communicating and understanding what other people think and feel. Therefore, he expresses his emotions through drawing and painting.
He loves using vibrant colors in his paintings. Most of his work are inspired by his surroundings- family, gardens, flowers and plants, animals. He paints what he feels and most of the time he paints spontaneously.
“Art - My voice. My emotion. No words required" - Danial Kushairi
