The Art of RAD Music - David Beresford
I was born March 14th, 1982 in Oakville, Ontario Canada, but spent most of my life growing up in Burlington. In my youth I was extremely quite and emotionally withdrawn, only really finding personal enjoyment working in solitude creating my artwork.
I was diagnosed with Autism at the age of nine, which left my parents and doctors puzzled and concerned about my social impairments and many other struggles I was going through. My learning style is quite different than most people as I struggle greatly with comphrending verbal communication.
After graduating from M.M.Robinson High School in June 2001, I was accepted into Sheridan College to earn a diploma through their world-renowned Illustration program. After graduating from the program in June 2004, I have been working as a professional illustrator and caricature artist. My art career really began 2006, where I started to do live caricature drawings for corporate events, private birthday parties, Canada’s Wonderland and Toronto Busker Fest.
My illustrations, paintings and caricatures tend to contain bright, vibrant colors with distorted and exaggerated images. I enjoy doing caricatures as it gives me a chance to combine humor and fun into my artwork.
Art is Autism, Autism is Art………..
