Michael Tolleson, An Autistic Savant Artist, Author, and Advocate

Michael Tolleson Robles Michael Tolleson Robles, An Autistic Savant Artist, Author, and Advocate To create his prolific works of art, with no formal instruction in art, Michael relies on his Autistic Asperger’s-mind. During his short-painting-career (about 10 years) he has painted more than two thousand gallery-worthy paintings. Regardless of its size, paintings are usually completed in less than an 120 minutes. As a result, Michael is reluctant to take credit for his work, believing his autism is actually the artist within him. Until his mid-fifties, Michael was unaware of his autism. In 2015, at the age of fifty-eight, he was formally diagnosed. Since 2012, the year Michael established his first artist social media page, Michael’s paintings and writings have been featured in three books: Dr. Tony Atwood’s Been There, Done That, Try This A European artist-collective/compilation titled, Sachet Mixte A collection of women based artworks with inspirations, The Strength Of Women In October 2014 Michael received a global first place in visual arts at the “ANCA Naturally Autistic 2014 Awards” in Scotland. In April 2015, Michael appeared and painted live at the Nokia Center in Los Angeles during the “Temple Grandin and Friends’” event, demonstrating, as a savant, the gifts autism brings through him. He does this often at autism benefits and conferences. As an author, advocate, and artist, Michael and has been featured on: NBC affiliate KING 5 Morning Show (New Day Northwest) in 2013 The Seattle Cable Channel 2013 KCPQ Fox Q13 Seattle 2014 KING 5’s Evening Newscast in Seattle 2015 Huntington, West Virginia’s NBC affiliate WSAZ Newscast April 2016 Huntington, West Virginia’s NBC affiliate WSAZ Newscast April 2017 San Diego’s CW6 Morning Newscast Oct 2016 San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, Malanquin Cable Broadcast (twice) September 2018 He has also been interviewed for countless American and Mexican newspaper articles and radio shows.
