My Pixel is Expanding

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.

This project is presented in partnership with Indefinite Arts Centre and made possible with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, as well as funding bodies representing the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Korea, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and host partners The New Gallery and Tangled Art + Disability.
