Lerman's artistic bent appeared at the age of 10 in the form of charcoal-drawn faces—both people he knows and those he imagines. In 1999 he had his own solo exhibition at the KS Art gallery in New York City.
Lerman has had personal exhibitions, and has also exhibited his work alongside others.
Lerman was also on the MTV television show True Life in the episode "True Life: I Have Autism"
