Pixel Kim is an artist with Down syndrome, expressing his interests in science, math, and geometry through art work that takes on various different forms within the visual arts. His works have been celebrated throughout various galleries and art institutions throughout Korea. By bring Pixel and his works to Canada, we hope that this can inspire others throughout the country to realize that the artistic creativity of individuals living with developmental disabilities should indeed be celebrated and supported – and that by finding the right medium like Pixel has, countless other artists can also walk in his footsteps and find support and integration into the mainstream arts world.
