Himal Bikmal

 

Himal Bikmal’s paintings were the inspiration for Zenaviv. Diagnosed with severe autism at the age of 2, Himal, now a teenager, communicates using sign language. He began painting at age 9, inspired by his mother. Since then, he’s completed over a hundred pieces!

Art has been very therapeutic for Himal, particularly helping him to focus. When he’s not painting, Himal loves solving jigsaw puzzles and spending time with other kids, especially with his big brother.
