autistic artist

From the NY Daily News:

This Brooklyn artist is going to the Met.

Amoako Buachie, 18, a gifted autistic artist from Flatbush, first featured in Brooklyn News last December, will have one of his paintings displayed in the world-famous Metropolitan Museum of Art next month.

“When I do my artwork, I feel very excited inside when I use bright colors to express myself,” Buachie wrote in a message attached to his brown-and-blue watercolor portrait titled “My Friend Andre.” “I love to draw and paint.”

Buachie’s portrait is one of 75 pieces from K-12 public school students citywide that were selected from among 800 to hang in the Met, as part of the Department of Education’s annual P.S. Art program.

“Being an artist makes me feel very special and talented,” Buachie wrote.

A 12th-grader at Public School 370 in Brighton Beach, Buachie suffered from aggressive midnight fits and tantrums that caused him to yell so loudly neighbors called police.

“Before, he was fighting me in the morning, and he wouldn’t go to sleep at night,” said mom Akosua Mainu, 46, a housecleaner who immigrated to Brooklyn from Ghana 15 years ago.
