BORN TO SHINE
‘BORN TO SHINE’ is Pixinity's philanthropic collaboration with Autism Speaks, as both share the goal of raising social awareness for those affected by autism. As part of this program, a portion of sales will be donated to support autism research and patients.
The artist behind Pixinity, Tianyu Qiu, has a family member diagnosed with autism and although they struggle with verbal communication, the two are able to communicate with computers, the internet, and iconographic symbols. In this exhibition, he replicates and creates a digital world for kids, families and all others to have fun and enjoy a fairyland of pixels.
“It is my goal to use Pixinity as a platform for autism awareness and spark a much needed dialogue about autism support,” says artist Tianyu Qiu. “With this in mind, we launched ‘Born To Shine,’ our philanthropic arm that helps and supports autistic children and their families. We are thrilled to be partnering with Autism Speaks, one of the leading autism support organizations nationally, for this exhibit.”

"Pixinity was so fun- each room had a different interactive experience! Great for art-lovers and Instagram pic seekers alike. And definitely family/kid-friendly. One last amazing plus is that the artist has partnered with Autism Speaks to promote social awareness for autism! Would highly recommend."
