A Few Thoughts

I’m learning that a lot of disabled people turn to art, from Christy Brown to Frida Kahlo and beyond. This is not a commentary on whether people are fans of their work or even them as people, just was an interesting bit of information.

Disability can be limiting, but it doesn’t have to define a person if they do suffer affliction. They can still be great contributors to society in whatever field they choose.

I am just personally particularly drawn to and inspired by disabled people in the art field in general, because I relate immensely.

Whether I’m a fan of a particular disabled artist or a particular art piece over another, is a discussion for another day. I don’t want to turn this into a tangent.
