An Enfield artist with Asperger’s syndrome is currently holding his third exhibition at Palmers Green Community Art Gallery.
Patrick Samuel picked up painting and drawing when he started his daily art therapy in December 2016. He has embraced his neurodiversity as a gift rather than seeing it as a disability; he’s found his voice and his calling.
Patrick has produced an extensive portfolio in a wide range of genres and media. Being on the autistic spectrum, he is stimulated by bold, contrasting colours, intricate details, multiple textures, and varying shades of light and dark. Patrick is working primarily with pastels, graphite pencils and acrylics, but he also enjoys experimenting with water colours, glass and oil paints.
