Paintings by Jean-Sebastien Choo, Self-taught Autistic Artist — My Essence


My Essence (14 x 11 in, water color and poster color, canvas panel, SGD180 + shipping)


People often ask me what Sebastien, my autistic son, is trying to "say" with his art — "Does he describe it to you?" They get a little disappointed when I shake my head.


But this notion stems from the fact of our tendency to think about art as representation.


But for Sebastien, an unguided and self-taught artist, who expresses emotions with his entire being, the painting embodies his entire being. Each piece of art captures his very essence — everything he is thinking and feeling at that very moment in time.


So as you look at this painting, try to imagine what it is showing about him..
