This Incredible Painter Is Only 15 | My Shopify Business Story


Your right brain is your creative and artistic side and your left brain is more your analytical and scientific side. My left brain is definitely more focused on the more science aspect of my life and my right brain is more focused on kind of like tying and fusing together in the art and fashion world through, various mediums. I’m Evan. I’m an artist. I’m an entrepreneur and I’m 15 years old. I went to Paris when I was around 9 or 10 and we decided to stop at the Louvre one day. It kind of just hit a hue with me. Not only the composition of the paintings, but just the feelings that they resonated within me. And so when I got home, I just really wanted to recreate that feeling that I had there. Probably by the third or
fourth canvas, he was creating things that had really interesting composition,
really interesting coloring. Even before I grab the canvas and do a couple of weeks of research about the personality, about their life. About the culture of that specific location and I try to combine those elements into the painting Once I actually approach the canvas, I keep on thinking about the landscape and that person until the last moment when
I put the brush to the painting. One of my main inspirations, kind of what got me into being interested in art in the
first place actually, was DaVinci. He’s a scientist, he’s an artist, he’s a writer. So they’re multiple different components and influences and inspirations into one piece. He watched Jackson Pollock paint,
he watched Jean-Michel Basquiat paint, and he watches scientists do things. He’s always had I think a pretty broad understanding of different things. I have a $6500 bid, last call. Sold! When I sold my first painting it was just a super cool feeling knowing that someone out there supported my art and was willing to pay money for it. What comes to my mind is the same thing that comes to everybody else’s mind which is you can’t believe what you’re looking at.
A 12 year old painting such an incredible piece. In the world of technology and everything. I think it’s just super important that we stay true to who we are. Go outside and experience nature. I think that nature is definitely one of my big inspirations both in life and in my creative process. There’s a lot of people who work in a job nine-to-five and they’re dissatisfied
and they come home and they spend one or two hours maybe on something their passion project and I don’t think that’s a good way to live. So I think whatever he ends up doing, he comes home from work, and he just goes man,
I just knocked it out today. It was a great day.

    His paintings look fun but in nonway is he a chikd prodigy if you look at all t abstract work by the old known masters they knew how anatomy and realism worked theybworked hard for it so they can understand the fundamentals of painting and drawing
    Their abstract work is upon that and their already famous name

    Not saying this kid is bad but he sure takes inspiration be these people
    I'm curious to see his actual work and studys

    Watch as this rich child explains how he was inspired by his international trips with his rich parents who could afford supporting him with materials and had connections to auction off his paintings to other rich people and how special he feels that someone would support his art as if it were something he never would have achieved having rich parents with connections.

    I suppose his narrative works from a marketing point of view. I see no prodigy though: the canvases shown are derivative of Basquiat and Picasso.

    No man this is not a child prodigy. We don't even know if he actually knows skills in art such as anatomy color theory perspective etc all I see is that he just so happens to have an abstract style similar to picasso. It doesn't mean he's as good as picasso because pisasso spent years studying art and decided to make his own abstract style. This kid on the other hand is just inspired by his style so in return paints similarly to him.

    Why is everyone coming for him. His art ain't bad at all. Why compare him to other young artist, everyone has a different way to Express themselves. It's not his fault his parents are rich either. Y'all should stop making him feel like his art is useless or something.

    Wait… Okay… Um… I could probably make paintings like that. What he's doing is just making the painting feel special by adding random colors, if one were to paint over the top of one of these paintings to remove the weird colors… suddenly the artwork is awful because of the proportions.

    A prodigy.. Let his balls sink in first. His art is bad, period! It truly has nothing on anything out there. Even for an amateur he is very mediocre. I bet his fundamentals are completely absent, he paints 'abstract' as an excuse because that is the only way he knows.

    Wait… @2:26 did his father say that, spending 1-2 hours on something is not a great way to live?! What the actual fuck. Does he even know what the definition of passionate means? If someone wants to spend a lot of time on a painting, it means they actually put effort into it and care what it will look like as the end result. Unlike your disillusioned child here who is throwing paint onto a canvas and making portraits with whatever shitty color he happened to have on his palette (and just didn't feel like mixing a new color).

    Modern Art is a terrible example of what we should consider as Art. And I say that as an Art student.

    A prodigy is determined by their skills. The pretentious "meaning" comes afterwards. But obviously that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

    Art is subjective and no one will paint the same way as another. Even if people are painting the same subject, it will look different from each canvas. If someone looks at this child's painting and sees complexity with the use of colour and techniques used, that's how that person views it. Abstract is not about just smearing paint on a canvas and calling it a day. It's hard not to muddy the colours together and to create depth and interest. So many people say they could do better, and in your eyes, or others, maybe you can. However, saying and doing are two different things. Art is about emotions, how someone feels looking at your piece. It's a tangible experience and it's up to those viewing it to decide what they feel. Most artists don't make money, and the famed ones didn't until after they died. Art is an escape for many that create it and those who enjoy it.

    You guys need to cut this kid some slack. I doubt he genuinely thinks of himself as a “child prodigy”; I’m sure Shopify just used that label for clickbait purposes. For a 15 year old, his art is amazing. Maybe not the best, but he’s 15! Give him a couple of years and I’m sure he’ll improve — both in painting and in artistic expression. I’ve also noticed many people bring up wealth. Money helps out, but it can’t buy talent. He’s not some rich kid who bought his way into recognition — he’s a young artist who had the means to be recognized. Using his wealth as a way to disregard him is wrong.
    It really upsets me to see so many ‘amateur’ abstract artists being demeaned by others because “Oh my friend does realism and she’s so much better”. You’re missing the point. Art isn’t a competition. There’s no definitive goal. Simply put, I see art as a means of expression and communication. We should celebrate different styles, not reject them.

    Let's hope he doesn't end as with the same fate as Basquiat. Too many dealers hyping him up. Too much exposure. Too much money and too much promotion too soon. Sure, his art still lives on, but he's a corpse in a coffin nonetheless!

    Everyone is defending the kid because of an art style. Paintings dont have to look less appealing because of an 'art style'. I just think the kid needs more practice. But I do congratulate him for presenting work to media. I dont like it when people use the excuse of art styles when it clearly needs some work. I have nothing against the kid but the paintings could be better. I hope this kid has a much brighter future for years to come

    Any rich kid can be an art prodigy if they want to 🙄 if he was poor doing the same thing nobody would care.

    The kid at least has a geniune understanding and appreciation for art which is admirable, but he's no prodigy. He's just wealthy.

    So he goes to Paris and sees the artwork of the masters then comes home and paints "Campbells Soup Cans". I thought this was a video on a child prodigy who paints and was expecting some really awesome paintings, instead I got a video about a 15 year old who paints average looking works but sells them because he lives in the big city. Not impressed!! A child prodigy should be painting the next Mona Lisa not what he is painting.
