Two-year-old Lola June may still be in diapers, but the tot is already taking the New York art world by storm, as she has created paintings that have sold to wealthy collectors for hundreds of dollars each.

She even has her own gallery show, as a solo exhibition dubbed “Hope,” featuring 37 canvas pieces by the youngster, opened at the Chashama gallery in Union Square Sunday.

More than 12 of Lola’s acrylic paintings priced between $300 and $1,600 have been snapped up, according to the exhibition’s curator.

Great start, man was I excited to see some of the paintings to come.

I start off each day typically once I get a few minutes to scroll through ATS new, and then News.Google.com

I saw this, and my click bait detector went off (it is NYpost after all) , but screw it I said, maybe this will be awesome.



Alright, not bad. I don't feel moved or anything, but not bad... If I saw it in someone's house, I would just think to myself "I won't allow myself to judge it, because I have no appreciation for art, and maybe that is a really nice piece or something".



Okay..... I don't appreciate art, but I seriously don't get it. What am I looking at? Am I supposed to be impressed a two year old did this, or does my confusion stem from the fact I wouldn't be surprised if a 50 year old did this?



Screw my lack of appreciation or taste for art... Seriously a toddler stuck their hand in paint and smeared it on a canvas.

Half rant, half current events....

Full confesion that not only do I have no culture, taste, or pallet for art..... I never will. It confuses me what "takes the world by storm".

Reminds me of when they let elephants, horses or dogs paint. Which is to say it looks like shizz.

I know a lot of picassos if this tot is being compared to him. In fact, i might be a DaVinci if that is the case.

This is how stupid people become famous. I’m guessing her parents have friends in the art industry, and those friends are humoring the family and the child.

Wow. My house is filled with priceless art. My grand babies have even taken to creating permanent murals on the walls. I wonder if my house is suddenly worth more now? Sarcasm of course.

Child exploitation. The parents should be investigated?

Well at least the animals won't become attached to what is theirs...

From the link in OP

Lucille said Lola treats the paintings like her friends, kissing them when she wakes up in the morning, and became distressed when Osmanaj took them away to be framed for the exhibition.


So some parents find out they can turn their diapers into gold.

Hope the money is going to her college fund, or else the whole situation is messed up.


Either way, I just imagine a whole bunch of hipster/high society type adults walking around a room filled with toddler smears sipping expensive wine, trying to convince everyone that they super duper appreciate the art. Also they're all really smart...

Something something, existentialism and art will save the world.

I just want to say thank you to everyone.

I half posted this wondering "will I be grilled for not having abstract thought?".

I am not alone.... I am not alone....

Maybe I can go to sleep tonight without punishing myself.

Basically verifies that some art critics are full of sh*t. I have a stack of paintings just like that from my 2 and 4 year old's day care that they send home every week.

Pfft. I can do better than that. (not by much, for sure).
Where is my money people?????

People with more money than brains, supporting people making money exploiting their kids.

What a great world we live in.

NOT.

What is going to happen, when this kid hits 13, and really can't paint?

These are scribbles on a piece of canvas. I pity you if you prescribe value to that. I could write a program in 10 mins to make much, much cooler pictures.

Too swift, we need to really reflect on how we got here.

BINGO, that's the first thing I thought. Still only a bright smear.

I honestly wouldn't expect much else from some of the "art" community.

I'm surprised they didn't find someone to play up a more ethnic/minority/refugee angle for the story.

That said, it's cheap enough(did i read about 100 bucks?). So maybe it's all in good fun. As long as the mother doesn't get too greedy and throw the kid in front of a bus, causing the price to skyrocket.

And they will buy anything sold by the right snake oil salesman.

Gullible is what allows the naked emperor to stay in power.

Pretty sure someone got a monkey to paint some pictures, 2 out of three critics said it was amazing. The other one said it looked like a monkey painted it
It’s all subjective, people pay what they think it’s worth notnwhat I do

I bought a footrot flats comic for $10.00 the other day
