Lessons in Anatomy: The Art of Myasia Dowdell | Brut Force

Sophia Cosmadopoulous introduces Myasia Dowell's work for Brut Force:

Diagnosed on the autism spectrum at an early age, Myasia Dowdell sees the world through a Technicolor, dreamlike lens. Soft spoken and extremely timid, she rarely offers a glimpse of this world, except through her art. Born in 1989 in New York City, Dowdell had difficulty communicating and socializing with other children, a common symptom of her disability. Early on, however, Dowdell began drawing and eventually learned to express her complicated thoughts through her art, exposing her fantastical universe.
