Aelita Andre: Four-Year-Old Abstract Artist

Move over, Jackson Pollock - there's a new art prodigy in town and she's kicking butt and taking names. And dripping paint, too. Meet four-year-old Aelita Andre:

Without explaining who Aelita was or about her age, her mother showed some examples of her art to the curator of an exhibition she was herself due to take part in – and he was so impressed that he asked to get in touch with the artist so that he could include the work he had been shown! Once the identity of the artist was explained to him, he remained undaunted – the quality of the work proved that it should be included in the exhibition together with that of talented professional artists, regardless of the age of its creator. Since then Aelita has gained prestige throughout the world, and her paintings are held in collections in Europe, Asia and Australia. Britain’s BBC even congratulated her on her second birthday!

Sounds like a lot of bitterness. I think someone's a little jealous. I happened to like ALL of the art. I'd be damned if any of your kids could do anything like it.

All you brainless individuals are what’s wrong with this world? You all are critics of a subject you know nothing about. Abstract art takes balance, composition, color, texture, movement, and the type of looseness that most tight realist painters lack. The fact that a 4 year old can balance all of these factors on large scale work is amazing. "It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a life time to paint like a child" Pablo Picasso. You all should be ashamed of yourselves for the utter disrespect you spit about a subject you know nothing about.

I agree, she's not a prodigy she's just a kid with a pile of paint. There is no thought process behind it, no necessary skill involved. It's total rubbish.

He's a prodigy

Start with this statement:
a 4-year-old can do abstract art

add the word 'even' and you get:
even a 4-year-old can do abstract art

Crap like this is all marketing and no talent. But of course if I knew how to do it I'd be making money from crap too :o)
