Omer Udvin is a young Israeli artist (20 years old) diagnosed on the autistic spectrum. For him, painting is a meaningful window to the world, allowing him to express himself in ways he is ordinarily unable to do.

The art is the twist in Omer’s endless journey of coping with autism. As a young boy, Omer objected even to holding a pen in his hand. Suddenly at the age of 8, he began to secretly draw just for him to see. Only when he felt more confident with himself, he started sharing them with his immediate family. His extraordinary drawing abilities were discovered only at the age of 17, and since then, despite his young age, he has developed a unique artistic style of his own and a personal artistic imprint.

His paintings are characterized by their abstraction, daring bold color pallets, and a naive-optimistic perception and view of our world. Omer’s artistic work is influenced by the expressionist modern artists such as Amedeo Modigliani, Egon Schiele, Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh and more…  Correspondingly, Omer is inspired by his great fondness for old cartoons and animation.

Omer works with various techniques, mainly acrylic paints on canvas, watercolors and mixed media using fabrics.

As an artist diagnosed on the autistic spectrum, art is his primary way to express himself and the way he experiences life. Colors, paint, and brushes became the keys to share his feelings and give others access to his inner world.
