Have we possibly discovered a baby Picasso?
Lola June is a 2-year-old who is making waves in the New York City art scene.
Her artistic talent was discovered by one of her mother’s friends, who showed her work to Anita Durst, the owner of an art gallery in New York, named ChaShaMa.
ABC News reported that Lola has already had her own exhibition, which took place at the beginning of the month.
The show’s curator, Pajtim Osmanaj, issued a statement saying that he wanted to prove how pure art can be and that years of experience aren’t a necessity to be able to create.
Lola’s mother, Lucille Javier, revealed that she underestimated her daughter’s ability and even discarded some of Lola’s earlier paintings.
Briefly.co.za noted the impact Lola is having via social media on her Instagram page.
Durst revealed that Lola’s artwork is very popular and that some of her paintings have sold for approximately R21 750.
