[PRESS RELEASE] Fresh from his first solo exhibition held at the Balay Dako in Tagaytay City, Julyan Harrison spreads fun and purpose through art at the First Pacific Leadership Academy in Antipolo.
Julyan Harrison, born in 1992, was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2. He has spent countless hours of multiple simultaneous therapies which enable him to function despite his severe communication and behavioral limitations.
Julyan’s parents’ relentless determination continues to uncover a myriad of possibilities in his sanctuary at Julyan’s Farm and Zambawood.
Today, Julyan has emerged as an accomplished artist in his own quirky way, where an ordinary pair of eyes may only see simple, one-dimensional subjects, Julyan’s works of art reflect more depth and confidence without completely losing its pure innocence. Indeed Julyan continues to find true fun and purpose, even in his “ordinary simple” activities by the beach at Zambawood in Zambales, Philippines.
The exhibit opens on December 13 and will run until December 19, 2017, at the First Pacific Leadership Academy in Antipolo. All net proceeds from the exhibit will help fund projects to provide skills training and employment for people with disabilities.
