Danny Lee is the 2016 Honorary AWARD recipient for Visual Arts and for his contribution to society as an Entrepreneur. He is one of only two individuals awarded this honor in the history of the ANCA World Autism Festival and the ANCA, Naturally Autistic organisations.
During his visit to the AWAF 2016 event, as an international delegate representing his Country Taiwan, Danny Lee was also honored as an international Exhibitor at the Taiwanese Canadian Cultural Society (TCCS), in Vancouver, B.C. The exhibition of his art was held at the centre during the week of the ANCA World Autism Festival Sept 30 – Oct 05, 2016.
When a recipient is acknowledged and recognised for their body of work and contribution to society, it is not just about the individual and celebrating their talent, innovation and abilities. It is about celebrating the people, society and culture which surrounds them and provides the necessary support any human being requires to excel and to expand his or her gifts! And, this is why at the AWAF venues, we celebrate all the cultures involved in the process.
The Cultural Heritage for all human beings, enables us to be proud, to be distinct, to be of value to society and from such strong roots of tradition to outreach and to share, connecting and interrelating the most basic of the human spirit and that of the vast physical geography of the world in its reflection. Artists, know only too well how this transference occurs because the medium of art transcends all possibilities as it is mirrored in all cultures.
We are honored to share the Taiwanese Culture through Danny Lee’s personal mirror reflection in his art and entrepreneurial innovation. We look forward to sharing more of his expansive body of art work as it reaches around the world through such practical products and designs transferred to cushions, bags, purses, books, post cards, sticky paper tape, prints and we hope in the near future interior and fashion design.
