Elias Shumway, 19, is a young artist who lives in Tianjin and happens to have autism. He is originally from the United States. Elas lived in Doha, Qatar for five years, and was selected to be in four exhibits there. He had his own solo show in 2019 at the prestigious Fire Station Museum in Doha. He has also exhibited and spoken about art and autism in France and the United States. His paintings hang in many countries all over the world. In 2020 a video called My Journey of Colors was made about his experience of painting and teaching, it has achieved wide acclaim and was translated into Chinese. Along with his mother, he teaches at two schools here in Tianjin for children and young adults with autism. He and his mother have created a non-profit foundation that is called#Art4Every1. It promotes helping people with art who have a faint voice--those with disabilities and live in poverty. Elias studies at the Miico Art Land School in Tianjin.

We will meet in the lobby of the museum at 13:45.
