I am inspired by comic book art and animated films like “into the spiderverse” and other artist’s work, like Van Gogh and Picasso.

My mom is an artist and I started drawing with her at a young age , but I have not had any formal training.

I have participated in art walks, our local farmers market, drawing the dogs I see there.

I have had art shows at the Riverwalk art center and in 2017 I went to Philadelphia with my Gramma and drew portraits during an event there which was awesome. Also in 2017, I got to meet one of my favorite artists, Ping Lian. We created art together at a special event for the Treffert Center.

I drew his portrait and gave it to him, and he gave me one of his drawings.

I use drawing as a way to connect with people, and create my own world.

Malachi Schmidt, 18 year old savant artist resides in Fond du lac Wisconsin, draws and paints anything from commissioned pet portraits, to influential people in history.

Malachi’s experience growing up with autism gives him a unique perspective and voice that comes through his art in an unmistakable style, while abstract, somehow captures the true essence of his subjects that others might miss.
