J.A. Tan is one of our featured artists in our newest book Artism: The Art of Autism. He resides in Vancouver, Canada and is a recent graduate of the prestigious Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Last year he had a one-man show at the Ayala Museum in Manila, Philippines. J.A. will be on hand at the Paint the town Red celebration at the Vancouver Convention Center the evening of April 8th  to sign books and to share his paintings and his innovative sculptor called “Inside Out”, which is a representation of how it feels to J.A. to have autism.

Because of widespread incidence, the subject of autism has become a topic of conversation worldwide.  Artism: The Art of Autism offers an incredible glimpse into the imaginative worlds of people living on the autism spectrum. The book, featuring artists of all ages and from all parts of the world, shows that autism has no boundaries. The artwork and voices in this book adds another dimension of understanding to how autism manifests differently in each person diagnosed.
