There are three elements to The Artism Project. The first is a presentation of my original illustrations from the picture book The Angel who was Accidentally Born on Earth. It plays an important role in deepening public understanding of people living with autism.

There will also be an exhibition of other artworks I’ve been inspired to create because of my contact with differently abled people. And finally, people with disabilities will be invited to participate in a drawing workshop to stimulate the creative impulse that human beings naturally possess.

The project is focused on raising awareness of differently abled people amongst the wider community and also engaging those people whose talents it is designed to showcase.

The Artism Project will be held at the Library at the Dock in Melbourne from 17 July to 8 Aug 2019.

This exhibition will provide a valuable opportunity for the community to see disability from different perspectives. I believe that art is a medium which can effectively involve and interest a very wide audience.

I hope that the illustrations and artworks will visually impact the viewers and leave them feeling more positive about a society which embraces different human abilities.

By engaging with this project a real difference can be made to the way autistic people and differently abled people in general are viewed by society and the way society interacts with them. Disability can be extremely isolating and engagement breaks the chain of loneliness.

The funds received from your kind donations will be used to cover picture frames, art materials and other cost for the exhibition.

Your support is deeply appreciated!

Handa undertook the Graphic Art/Design Course at the Osaka Designers College. His art explores what the world would be like and how we may have evolved if the earth developed under different circumstances. Handa produces work incorporating design, art, multi-media and installation art.
His work is a combination of pop and Buddhist philosophy. Handa has exhibited widely, including at the Red Cross International Gallery (Switzerland), Sub Station Gallery(Singapore), Object Gallery (Sydney) and in the 12th Asian International Games (Japan). Handa has published several children’s picture books including “Onegai Nanmaider” from Iwasaki Shoten and “Secret Bug’s Land” by East Press.

His artworks are held in private collections in Japan, Switzerland and
Australia and public collections including the Singapore National Art Museum and the Practice Performing Art Center.

In 2013, Handa began conducting Art & Craft lessons for local
children. In recent years, his focus has shifted to creating a platform for
future generations by providing children an opportunity to explore their
inherent creativity.
