Artist to Know - Aelita Andre

I discovered a new artist, an amazing new artist. She has been compared to Jackson Pollock by the press and her visionary style to Salvador Dali and Wassily Kandinsky.

What is most amazing about this artist is that she is 4 years old, and the youngest professional painter in the world. She has been painting since she was 1 and had her first solo gallery show when she was 2 years old.

After her first show she attracted worldwide media attention with 60 Minutes calling her “The Next Big Thing” and the Chinese press calling her paintings “The work of a Master”. BBC London rang to congratulate Aelita on her second birthday and for her immense achievement. The Australian media dubbed her “Pee Wee Picasso”.

Aelita Andre is a professional abstract painter of Russian heritage, currently living in Melbourne, Australia with her mother Nikka and her father Michael.

To date Aelita has painted over 200 paintings, many of them large canvases. They radiate a genuine vitality, energy and beauty.

In her most recent show her work was priced between $4400 - $10,000, and at another show selling one of her pieces for $24,000.

Her works are so vivid and expressive, and so full of energy. Her style and subject matter is eclectic and wide ranging. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us in the future.

Watch this amazing artist in action.  This video is engaging and inspiring.

  1. What is so beautiful about this to me is the freedom that she had to have been given by her parents to explore and create, despite the messes and inconvenience. A good lesson for all parents, whether it be on a canvas or even cooking in the kitchen.

  2. Shared this from your blog on Twitter and FB. Thanks for sharing it with us.:)

  3. She is just too cute! That studio of hers would be every child's dream come true. Wild, complete, creative abandon! :)

  4. That is fantastic. Such an adorable young artist! I want a space like that where I can fling paint everywhere. And such a beautiful video, too - thank you for sharing!

  5. I found it so unbelievable until I watched the video. I was totally captured by the intent look on her face when she was painting and how she knew exactly what she was doing and how she wanted her piece to come out. She has a natural ability with color as well which I found so amazing!

    My first thoughts when I saw the huge mess was how marvelous parents she has to be so supportive and to nourish the talent that she has.

    Thanks so much for sharing. I plan to share this on my blog as well.
