Meet The Two-Year-Old Art Prodigy

This two-year-old art prodigy isn't going to let still being in diapers prevent her from building an empire.


This two-year-old art prodigy isn't going to let still being in diapers prevent her from building an empire. Lola June is already making big money selling her work in the New York art scene.

Lucille Javier told Good Morning America that her daughter's talent was discovered by her friend, who then showed the work to Anita Durst, the owner of the Chashama Gallery in New York City. Lucille said she wasn't aware of Lola's talent until Durst expressed interest. "I've definitely thrown some of her artwork away," Lucille explained to GMA .

Lola's paintings stand out for their use of color and composition. An Instagram dedicated to displaying her art has over 2,000 followers. She's even known as the "Pint-sized Picasso" by many on social media.

The "Pint-size Picasso" has her own exhibit entitled at the Cashama Gallery. Some of her paintings have sold for as much as $1,500. Pajtim Osmanaj, the curator of the show, said he hopes to show people "how pure and simple art can really be," in a post to announce the exhibit on Instagram.

When GMA asked if Lola was actually talented or just good for her age, Durst said it was a mix of both. "Lola is good. And she is good for a 2-year-old," Durst said.
