Autistic man showcases his artistic abilities
For many people with autism, the syndrome means doors are closed, but for Alex Masket, autism has opened up doors thanks to his artistic talents.
Masket has had his art featured in numerous exhibitions, including a recent exhibition at the Riverfront Library in Yonkers.
Alex's mother, Elaine Masket, says that art originally was an activity to keep her son busy and safe, but it has turned into so much more.
She says that the art likely gives a snapshot into Alex's inner world.
His next exhibition, "Color-Struck," is expected to open next month in Manhattan.
