Helen Bridjo has already bought nine paintings by Advaita: "I remember walking into the exhibition hall and couldn't believe my eyes: these colors were so beautiful that they immediately attracted all my attention. You know, if you are not familiar with abstract painting, it can be easily argued that anyone can also sketch paints on canvas. But if you understood colors and textures, you would notice that these works are more than just drawings on canvas."

Sandar Altweger, artist and Art College teacher: "Many children just see colors in front of them and mix them as they want. This is another case: this boy thinks everything through, he is passionate about his occupation. This is quite unusual. You never know how such a hobby can end. I saw many young artists who were very gifted, but then lost interest in creativity."
