Coming Soon: ‘Autismo 25’ – A Tactile Exhibition on Autism, Colour and Shape
Mahlia Amatina, the Abstract Colourist, is a visionary & neurodiverse artist with an international background that inspires her passionate abstract art. With roots from lands afar, her artistic inspiration stems from the varied landscapes and flavours of her global travels. Diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome 3 years ago, her work reflects on the visual vocabulary of shape, line, colour and edges, which gives heed to making sense of the world around us. She strives towards finding a correlation between organic and physical shapes to more concrete concepts and questions, in order to gain a better understanding of my Autism.
Mahlia developed her signature style of Abstract Colourism through her search to merge expressive colour with a narrative element and creates storytelling through abstraction that transcends language and can speak to all. Mahlia ’s work can be seen at both fine art & community venues, as she pushes for artwork to be experienced by a wider variety of audiences.
“My vision is colour. My heartbeat is rhyme. My mind expands with bursts of line, shape, and form. And my hands tell my stories.”
