I hope you are able to redirect your anger and frustrations. . Negativity only breeds separation.
If your anger to waking up has now blinded you to the point that you wish to respond in more negativity, I will wish you Peace and humbly discontinue this conversation. I mean my words in the spirit of uplifting, not ego-battling. Peace to you.
And here is the problem! Dont get angry, dont get upset, for gods sake dont be soooooo negative!!! A few people on this thread have raised some legitimate concerns about a society that would take a four year olds paint splatters as genius, propping up the parents ego, and pay thousands of dollars for it when we have millions of children every week dying of hunger and having bombs blowing them apart..... etc. and you people get all touchy and defensive and accuse the people who are making sense, of being spoilt sports and that its just "a kid having fun with paint" My child has fun with paint too and its great, but the thought that children just like her are growing up without adequate shelter/food/clean water, the thought that the mining companies and food industry corporates and medical mafia are turning our earth into a wasteland- ON OUR WATCH- while we oh and ahh about ridiculous s*** like this and spend thousands of dollars filling our homes with ridiculous s*** we dont need, like this kids paintings, well it just makes me sick
But of course, Im being too negative, angers a sin, "Ohhhh no someones angry about the asinine world we live in shut him/her up shut him/her up!"
Anger is constructive, people need to be angry, it's hate that is destructive and it is hate that this society is breeding. We need to get angry, then we need to act. It may mean that four year olds wont make thousands of dollars for throwing paint around , but hey, they'll get over it.
Just because I enjoy the end result of this 4 year old child's efforts does not make me naive or a sheep.

To each their own. After looking up some reviews online for this artist, one review stated she is either a genius or a sneaky joke on the artistic community. Which one it is will be in the eye of the beholder, I suppose.

You are envisioning his later work, which was done after he got bored with pretty much all the styles up to that point. He was a master at the human form, composition, color theory.
And that's how you know he was incredibly talented (ie, a 'prodigy) - he knew all there was to know and made the pictures to prove it.
It is a very Art History oriented argument that can make the case for this child to NOT be a 'prodigy,' unless she fully understands the influences that she is 'working' under.
It's still very early in her development, so the potential is there, but the proof, as they say, is in the pudding.
