Art History Futures - 'She paints like Picasso'
June 6 2011
Meet Aelita Andre, who has her first solo show in New York. Aelita is four.
Says Angela Di Bello, director of the Agora Gallery:
'She's special in that she really knows what she's doing... if you look at her paintings you'll see that they're balanced... it's one painting after another, she's very very consistent in her work, so she's already developed a style that is hers. What's interesting about her work is that it's abstract impressionism but it's also surrealist in the way she includes objects in her works, and how she includes objects.'
Dubbed 'the youngest professional painter on the planet', Aelita's paintings are priced at up to $9,900 each. Of 24 paintings in the exhibition, 9 were sold by the end of opening night.
Only in New York?
