A 16-year-old teenager with autism is holding an exhibition called I Am Alex from Aug 16 to Aug 29.
It will be the first exhibition for the teenager, Alexandros Julian Lim, also known as Alex. The exhibition will be held at StudioNeon at 32 Haji Lane and will present a collection of 30 artworks. There will also be a virtual exhibition.
The art pieces are categorised into Abstract, Bugs & Animals, and Objects/Nature/People.
The paintings in I am Alex are inspired by everyday things and emotions and are painted and drawn in 20x26x2cm primed linen canvas with a 2cm depth.
Alex has teased on his website that there might be special large paintings in the collection as well.
Each 20x26x2cm painting is sold at $55 with free delivery and half of the exhibition sales will be donated to the Cat Welfare Society.
The society was chosen by Alex due to his love for cats. He is also an owner of two cats which have been with him since he was six years old.
On his website, Alex said that he has loved to draw and paint since he was little and painting gives him a lot of joy. He also hopes that his paintings will bring joy to buyers.
