Jonathan Lerman is an autistic savant with an IQ of just 53. At just 2-years old, Lerman would begin to slide into long silences, and would be diagnosed autistic, just a year later. While his autism made if difficult for him to communicate in a typical manner, his artistic ability would help him express what he was thinking. By the age of 10, he began drawing charcoal portraits of friends and people he had seen - even if he had just made them up in his mind. At the age of 14, Lerman had his pieces appearing in New York art galleries.
