CANADA: For most toddlers, dirtying the walls of the house with their crazy craft is the height of artistic exhibition or their hand-painted masterpieces. But this is not at all true for 4-year-old Advait Kolarkar, who has achieved what prolific artists take years to achieve. Calling this kid talented would be an understatement.
Advait is not just holding solo exhibitions, but also selling his art for thousands of dollars at the age of four. According to reports, Kolarkar is the youngest artist in the history of the Canadian city’s Saint John Arts Centre. His paintings are mostly inspired by galaxies, dinosaurs and dragons.
see how Advait paints in the video below:
Advait’s painting exhibition titled “Colour Blizzard”, exhibited 30-paintings of his. It opened last Friday and will run until March 3. The paintings are figuratively flying off the wall, with 24 of them already sold. According to the Vancouver Sun, Advait’s mother Shruti Kolarkar, a commercial artist, said that he first picked up the brush when he was only a year old.
With titles like “Supernova” and “Jellyfish,” each canvas is a wash of well-composed colour, thickly layered by hand and brush. According to Advait’s mother Shruti, her son’s work is completely spontaneous. Nobody instructs him or influences what he paints.
In fact, Advait Kolarkar’s paintings were displayed at the ArtExpo in New York – the world’s largest fine art trade show.
He held his first solo exhibition at the Saint John Arts Centre in New Brunswick in January this year. The show titled ‘Colour Blizzard’, his paintings fetched as much as $2,000 (over Rs 1.3 lakhs).
Advait for sure is setting some serious goals for adults and art enthusiasts!
