Twelve-year-old Sashko, who went missing last year and was found in the woods after a nine-day search, will present his second solo exhibition today. It will be arranged in the Mining Directorate of his hometown Pernik. 

Visitors will see 24 paintings by the autistic boy - all created in the last nine months, according to his father Alexander Tsvetanov. Experts describe Sashko's style as expressionism. "He puts different images in his paintings, there are forests, mountains, angels, ghosts, figures," the parent explains. 

Sashko's first exhibition was presented two months before he got lost in the forest. The boy is a sixth-grader and has been undergoing stem cell therapy for some time, which has been good for him.
