The teen art prodigy taking the world by storm

In this video, we meet the inspiring, 14-year-old Aelita Andre, a teen artist prodigy.

See here in a mini-documentary that was produced while she was still 12, Aelita explains how she became an established artist, known for her abstract paintings that are inspired by everything from nature to music.

Born in Melbourne, Australia in 2007, Aelita was just two years old when she had her first gallery exhibition.

Since then, the painter’s work has been displayed in cities around the world, including London, Hong Kong and New York City, while she has sold paintings for as much as $30,000.

Some people have called her a young Jackson Pollock, but, as Aelita shares with us… she isn’t interested in being compared to other artists: she is creating her own style.
