The Art of Autism has created a separate page for Jeremy Sicile-Kira for the MozArt@OMA online exhibit because Jeremy has detailed descriptions for each of his art pieces.
San Diego-based intuitive artist Jeremy Sicile-Kira is a synesthete – he sees and feels emotion as colors. Voices and music elicit colors as well. In 2012, Jeremy (who is autistic and communicates by typing) began to tell others about his dreams: dreams that he was painting the emotions of people into colorful abstract portraits. One night he dreamt that he painted ten of his paintings and had an art show. Jeremy was encouraged by his mother to make this dream come true, and began to paint in real life. In 2016 his first curated solo art show was covered by national and local media, resulting in a sold-out show and many private commissions.
Jeremy’s mission (when creating commissioned portraits) is to paint and describe what he sees as each person’s inner beauty and true self, so that they may realize how gifted they are, and that they hold the keys inside to overcome any challenges they face. www.jeremysvision.com

Truly I dreamt I painted the colors of beautiful Carmen in the film version of Bizet’s opera, Carmen, directed by Francesco Rossi. Truly the colors were brilliant and frankly vibrant with the beauty of the opera singer Julia Migenes playing the part of Carmen.

Justly I very much had a dream about the beautiful Safari Park and the amazing animals inside the great enclosures and the happy children with their parents visiting animals, realizing for the first time that the pictures in their baby books were beautiful beings that really were nicely more magnificent than the books led them to believe.

Truly I felt the red of the pain and wilting energy of her brain. Greatly the kind brain was in shock. Belief that my mom was really in pain did greatly make me feel my lifeline was in danger, but I knew from my nice mom that she believed dearly she would recover. Frankly my mom had a long way to go but my mom’s friends and family never lost hope that she would make a full recovery represented by white.
