Bright, gentle, and imaginative, Seth Chwast is an American artist who was diagnosed with autism at 21 months. Primarily non-verbal, Seth participated in a vocational evaluation at age 18 which resulted in a career recommendation of dry mopping. At 20, he took his first art class and by 23 was on the Today Show as a featured artist.
Now 34, Seth has shown in hospitals, museums and universities throughout America. He has exhibited in Galapagos, Cayman, Curacao, Kiev, the United Nations, and throughout Europe. In 2011, Seth came in first place in a world-wide United Nations competition and his art was placed on a postal stamp to promote autism awareness. In 2015, Seth had his first European exhibition in France and in 2017 he was a featured artist at the London Art Biennale, where he earned the European Confederation of Art Critics Award, Third Prize.
