Sugar Art for Autism Collaboration
My inspiration was my son’s best friend who is 14 years old and he has autism. We were talking about the collaboration and suddenly I remembered a picture of a friend that she post on instagram. This mural is in Dubai and for me and my friend it completely express the world of colors his child sees and perceives. And how modifying the lines to colored rain will make total sense.
