Arturo Alejandro Brito B. was born in Caracas (Venezuela) on April 7, 2002. When he was a year and a half old he was diagnosed with Autism. He flapped his hands; he walked on tiptoe, hitting his head against the wall. The day we received the diagnosis we decided that each achievement would be considered as an accomplishment and that we would go step at time. When he was in sixth grade, a friend gave him a book on how to draw dinosaurs. From that time on, everything changed. His behavior. His attention and energy.
Arturo found in the drawing a way to express himself and with a video game he began to make his first animations with Stop Motion. Then, with the Lego blocks, he found a range of possibilities and they were used to make small videos.
In 2015 he moved to the United States, and when he went to High School he applied to five magnet schools that offered Digital Animation studies. He was accepted in all and decides to study 3D Animation. This year he will be completing his last grade. He assures that studying with his teacher Mr. Torres is something that amuses him a lot.
Between 2018-2019, he began learning how to use Garage Band and Harmony Toom Boom with the help of the “Animation Gets Real” group. Since then, he began to acquire knowledge about these programs that he has continued to use with small videos that he makes in his spare time,
Arturo is working on his new YouTube channel that he has called “The Grey Guy”, a platform in which he seeks to identify his ideas, his points of view on specific topics and his creativity to its maximum expression.
For Arturo, (The Grey Guy as he likes to be called in his networks) animation has become a way of life, where his imagination is fired with real or fictitious characters that he crosses in epic stories that flutter in his head. Stories that sometimes come to light, and many others remain browsing their world where autism, more than a diagnosis, is a way of living.
