Eddie Li is a Toronto artist living with Autism Spectrum Disorder. He has studied art under his teacher and mentor Julie McMeekin Director of ArteMbassy Gallery School. As he finds language challenging, abstract expressionist art is his way of communicating his ideas and emotions.
His work is inspired by his love of nature. He is drawn to water and enjoys depicting the oceans and all the beauty of corals in the ocean depths. The beauty of his work emerges from his spontaneous response to colour, texture and the painted surface - pure and unaltered by preconceived ideas. He works intuitively and responds in the moment. His current focus is on fluid art which allows him to indulge in his love of vibrant colours.
Eddie has participated in public art shows such as Toronto Outdoor Art Fair, Riverdale Art Walk, Artwalk in the Square, Art in the Park Oakville and regularly conducts fluid art workshops with Autism Ontario.
