King Nobuyoshi Godwin
King expresses his feelings about the important things in life and love through his paintings. He believes in his work and each creation is precious to him. Colours and numbers are friends with their own special meanings; for instance, 4500 is the happiest number, while 07 is sad, and 77 is a good day! With a smile on his face and a brush in his hand, he translates his feelings into colour on canvas. King views being autistic as a blessing, because it allows him to see beautiful trees—and to talk to them. Every piece of art he sells supports his ability to live independently. King’s career as a professional artist is not only inspiring, it is also proof that life with a disability can be productive and meaningful!
