Freya Kun

Young autistic artist from Aachen, Germany - Freya Kun says:
"I’m 25 years old, currently live in Aachen (Germany).
Art always was a safe space for me. As we know being autistic means being different (what people also make you feel), but in art it is okay to be weird, it is even kind of desirable. So in the ‘art world’ I always felt more welcome.

The piece I have featured is called Starkregen (heavy rain in English.) and was inspired by having a so called obscure mind. Heavy clouds which don’t represent a feeling/emotion, rather an exhausting but extraordinary (in a positive way) neurological state. The severed head can be seen as dissociation from the environment. Perhaps it’s not the first impression people have, but the work ist definitely positive and life-affirming."
