SHOWCASE artworks by PRODIGIOUS SAVANT ~ Ping Lian,Yeak autistic

 

A remarkable showcase by autistic prodigy, 17 year old Malaysian Yeak Ping Lian. There are
fewer than 100 prodigious savant living worldwide. Award winning Ping Lian is one of them.
“Prodigious Savant” is a high threshold term reserved for savants whose abilities are considered
phenomenal and labeled "genius" if seen in non-disabled persons. Savant syndrome is a
remarkable condition where individuals display exceptional abilities despite disorder like autism
or developmental retardation.

Ping Lian began drawing at age 8 and has not stopped ever since. He has exhibited throughout
New York City, Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, Brisbane, London and Germany. His use of colours and
his creation of intricate lines result in his signature style; images within images, encompassing
hidden aspects or forms not initially seen nor noticed. “They are national treasures wherever
they are located.” Dr. Darold A. Treffert, a renowned American psychiatrist, is also an
internationally known Researcher who has been studying the Savant Syndrome for the last
45 years.

It is a stunning reminder to the wonders and mysteries of life.
