This young painter shows you a different face of autism

December 25, 2017

Sanjna Srikanth, a young artist from Bengaluru has been raising money for charities by selling her paintings from the time she was just a teenager.

Her paintings have been displayed at the World Economic Forum, and, in 2014, she received the International Diana award from the British prime minister, an award that celebrated achievements by young people.

What makes Sanjna so remarkable is that she has achieved all things while living with the challenges that come with being diagnosed with autism.

Sanjna is currently displaying her work at the Kala Academy in Goa. Her works are set aside alongside a sculptural interpretation of the paintings by her teacher Vinod Shahapure.
