A 4-year-old prodigy from India paints paintings that sell for thousands of dollarsBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/a-4-year-old-prodigy-from-india-paints-paintings-that-sell-for-thousands-of-dollars
Little Advait Kolarkar is 4 years old, he does not go to school yet, but he paints pictures that are sold for a lot of money for a child. The boy has already managed to take part in many fine exhibitions along with adult artists.
Until 2016, Advait lived in India, then moved with his parents to Canada, a more developed country in the field of art. The boy's last exhibition, ArtExpo, was held in New York. Advait, of course, was the youngest participant.
The boy was only 8 months old when he first picked up a brush. After seeing the drawing, the parents did not believe that their son had drawn it. Advaita's mom admits that it was magic for them.
"He has a clear direction and aspiration, he knows exactly where he needs to move, and he leads himself to the result," the boy's mother says in an interview with the BBC.
Advait already had three exhibitions of his own, and his parents got about 55 thousand dollars for all his paintings sold.
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."
"These are all his creations, the fruit of a mighty imagination. And we would like everything to remain like this forever," the boy's dad says.
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."
