Art is considered a grownup's game and high-end galleries can be regarded as the holy temples of sophistication, yet what percentage of adults make art regularly compared to what perecentage of kids? I love both kids' and 'primitive' art because the artists' creative preconceptions are so much fewer and therefore the creative expression so much fresher and broader. I even try to incorporate some of these qualities in my own work but am regularly hemmed in by the sheer overcrowding of 'art stuff' in my brain.
So it's interesting to run across these so-called child prodigies who are succeeding at this game way beyond my own wildest imaginings. But wait! There are now children succeeding at the adult game on both sides of the cash register. I can now be two shades of green with envy! For more on children who collect art check out this Wall Street Journal article (link found on this blog).
