Aiden Campbell sees things differently to most others his age.
Sometimes this can get the eight-year-old from Towradgi in a little bit of trouble but it also allows Aiden to express himself creatively through his art.
Simone Campbell said her son felt at "ease" and was at his best when creating art.
Next week the talented young artist's second exhibition opens in Wollongong. Like his debut exhibition last August, Under The Sea To Outer Space And Everything In-Between, is aimed at raising awareness of children with learning and memory disabilities - like Aiden himself, who has a mild form of autism.
The condition seems to amplify Aiden's creativity but renders him unable to remember more than about 4 per cent of what he hears and sees. He grows frustrated at his limitations and is prone to outbursts.
Mrs Campbell organised Aiden's first exhibition as a way for the outside world to see a different side to him. She said the latest exhibition was all Aiden's doing.
''Behind each piece of Aiden's work there is a story. It can take weeks or months to get it just right. It's really amazing to watch him at work," she said.
"Aiden's first art exhibition in August 2014, The World Through Aiden's Eyes, was a resounding success, but it was also a launch platform for this new show."
The Towradgi Public School year 3 student was inspired to create his own art after attending art teacher Tegan Russell's exhibition in mid-2013.
Using inks and different techniques, Aiden has created his own style of fine art, which is evident in Under The Sea To Outer Space And Everything In-Between, showing at Project Contemporary Artspace from April 6-12. The gallery at 255 Keira Street, Wollongong is open daily from 10am to 4pm.
Aiden will donate one of his works to Wollongong Hospital Children's Ward.
