Ashokkumar Mistry is a multidisciplinary artist, writer and curator working in the UK and internationally. Ashokkumar didn’t identify as neurodivergent until he was in his 40s, and it was a seminal moment for his artistic practice. Since then, he has been focused on researching and writing about disability and neurodiversity. His writing encompasses direct research and personal experiences relating to disability and neurodiversity with a view to sharing experiences and changing attitudes. The formation of the Disability in British Art research group emanated from Ashokumar’s Associate Artist with Disability Arts Online (2020-2022). He is also a Development Artist with The Spark Arts (2020-2022), a fellow of the International Association of art critics and a founding member of Onyx art collective.
Ashokkumar has been commissioned by the BBC and a number of galleries such as the Lowry and Southbank Centre to create artworks and exhibitions.
Ashokkumar has also developed a number of exhibitions in Taiwan for National Cheng Kung University and A-Glow space.
