The Arts & Business Council, Blackbird Media, and F&M Bank have teamed up to present the Artist of the Week on The Nashville Sign. This week’s featured artist is Rainbow Mosho.
Rainbow is an author and illustrator born in Athens, Greece in 2008. At 30 months of age, autism became a part of her life. In recent years, Rainbow’s art has been exhibited in Tennessee and Japan, and her creation Afro Power won 3rd Prize in the “Fly Your Flag” contest.
“I have a voice. I want to be included in any conversation that wishes to influence my life. I want kids to find hope in my art and books.”
In 2020, Rainbow created the COVID19 Art series to express with bright colors all about family love, the discovery of life and death, handling PTSD, and the greater meaning of family—deep wisdom for a then 12-year-old with autism.
In November 2020, Rainbow became a published author, co-authoring and illustrating three books:
- What I Gained and Lost During COVID19 – published November 2020
- Rainbow Rabbit Meets Oracle The Alphabet Creature – published March 2021
- Balloons – published July 2021
All three books are currently available on Amazon.
