This fact will definitely reignite the debate about what art really is - does the product of a kid playing with paint really constitute fine art? The parents of 4-year-old Aelita Andre definitely think so. The precocious Australian artist has reportedly been toddling around on canvases since she was 9 months ago! Now that she’s all grown up at the age of four, 3 of her paintings have sold for $27,000!
She also has her own art show, “The Prodigy of Color”, at the Agora Gallery in NYC. The twenty-four works on display are priced anywhere from $4,400 to $10,000 a piece. The gallery’s director, Angela Di Bello, actually chose her artwork before she knew the painter’s age! She thought the pieces displayed “great colors, great movement, great composition, and were very playful”, then she found out they had been produced by a child!
