Chennai NGO helps artists with disabilities find employment


Swaminathan is a 30 year old artist with autism and lives in Chennai. He started creating drawings from crayons when he was two year old.

His artwork became the part of an exhibition at the Swiss Hutte Café. Swaminathan always preferred using black and white colors as other colors confused him.

Apart from Swaminathan, six other artists also presented their artwork at the café. Each artist has a disability and uses art as a medium of expression.

The display was organized by NGO Kai Rasi that is working to find employment opportunities for artists with disabilities.
