Nolan Cooley is a 14-year-old California-based artist living with autism. We came across images of his work over a year ago and love how Nolan and his family promote creativity. Nolan began obsessively making repetitive pattern art at the age of six. Now 8 years later, Nolan has amassed a large collection of artwork—expressing his creativity and pouring out his passion onto everything from paper to canvas to surf boards to skate decks and more.
Nolan recently created a custom shirt with K-60 Paint Markers, using the round tip and squeezable body to create his pattern.
K-60 Paint Marker
The K-60 Paint Marker contains alcohol-based paint that is permanent and opaque. Available in 15 colors. For his personalized shirt, Nolan uses Light Blue, Red and Yellow. 15mm round tip is excellent for use on smooth surfaces. Squeezable body helps control paint flow. Handmade in the USA.
