Larry Bissonnette

Meet Larry as he paints in his studio and describes his world.

His work has been exhibited regularly in well known local and national exhibitions such as the annual Outside Art Fair in New York City.

In 1991, he was introduced to facilitated communication and began combining words with his art to express his thoughts and ideas. Larry's artwork and writing have been published in Autism and the Myth of the Person Alone by Dr. Douglas Biklen.

Produced by Zach Rossetti and Dr. Douglas Biklen from Syracuse University, Larry is both the subject and the writer of My Classic Life as an Artist, an award-winning film about his life.
