Talent or Just a kid who's parent's happen to have art connections?


It's amazing what a little kid can do with colored canvases, glue, pipe-cleaners, pompoms, plenty of paint—and the understanding that she won't get in trouble if she makes an enormous mess. The question is: Is she just playing, or deliberately creating art?

Aelita Andre's parents, both artists, are certain that their daughter is a bona fide Abstract Expressionist painter. The Australian girl has been crawling around on canvases since she was about 9 months old, according to her dad Michael Andre, and she made her first piece of authentic art just a few months later. Now, at the ripe old age of 4, she's got her own show in New York, "The Prodigy of Color" at the Agora Gallery in Chelsea. And she just sold three of her paintings for a cool $27,000.


What's tour take?

(What catagory is this?  Entertainment or General??  Or is is Current events?  Ah well, you'll move it if you want to right?)
