Miyakah is a Neurodivergent (diagnosed ASD and ADHD), Painter and Computer Scientist. They use their gifts as a neurodiverse person to explore the range of complex emotions and experiences through the lens of abstraction including synesthesia and automatism. Defiance, subversion of normativity and authentic communication are part of Miyakah’s goals as an artist. These come directly from their identity and subsequent way of occupying space in the world. Their vision as an artist is not ancillary to their intersectionality; it is sharped and refined by it. As a result, each stroke of paint is a product of the different underrepresented communities that they belong to. Their art is political because their being is political; therein lies both the brilliance and the freshness of what they create.
