Video Of The Week - Genius Toddler Artist

By Meera Dolasia on May 18, 2009

Just like any two-year old, Melbourne toddler, Aelita Andre loves to finger paint - Except her paintings are considered works of art and, are fetching thousands of dollars.

Aelita, rose to fame earlier this year, after a gallery added her 'abstract' paintings to their collection, not realizing that she was just two years old. By the time the gallery owner found out, he had already added her work to his marketing catalogues and decided to see what happens. He needn't have worried - Aelita's paintings sold like hot cakes and the rest as they say, is history.

The two-year old who still drinks milk from a bottle, and is a big fan of Baby Einstein now even has her own website, www. aelitaandreart.com, that showcases and sells all her masterpieces - pretty amazing!

    That's very interesting but why 1,000$ or 2,000$ for a toddlers painting?!

      Umm thats cute but so not fair. I know many people are amazing artists but no one even knows their name. A toddler's messy paint splatters should not be sold for thousands of dollars.

          Um, no offense, but is that fair? I understand that she painted them, but she's two years old. She didn't even know what she was doing. I'm sure I could do that, too, and I'm no prodigy.
