Niam’s remarkable story and artwork drew the attention of Samsung Canada in 2015. Niam was the featured ambassador of #WHOEYEAM, an online and in-store national campaign designed to raise awareness of Samsung’s Look At Me App which was developed to help kids with autism learn communication skills. The campaign featured both Niam and his artwork.
The value of aligning a brand with a high profile figure who has overcome significant challenges to win the admiration of leading critics is powerful. Niam is an ambassador of ability, an impressive representative of a widely misunderstood community who symbolizes at once the neurodiverse community we live in, and the incredible power within everyone to overcome virtually any challenge.
As a budding entrepreneur, Niam recognizes that buying original artwork is not in everyone’s budget, so has developed an online shop where visitors can purchase items featuring some of his most popular work. Everything from mugs to T shirts, scarves to hand-painted perfume bottles are available at www.niamjainshop.com Niam hopes to continue to develop as an artist while sharing a little joy with others.
