In the art universe, a NYC painter is making waves, and she’s just a kid! Lola June seems like any other two-year-old at a quick glance. But this pint-sized Picasso has sold hundreds of dollars per piece of artwork already. She is an artist with her own exhibition entitled Hope: A Lola June collection of paintings. Family friend and artist Pajtim Osmanaj curated the solo show, and says when she laid eyes on Lola’s very first piece he was surprised.
“I love it and I want to show her work to others,” he said.
More than 30 of her works line the walls of Chashama, a space for artists in Union Square. Founder Anita Durst says the non profit gets thousands of applications every day from artists hoping to showcase their talents.
About a third of her artwork has been sold, and the inquiries keep continue to pour in.
Prices range from $400 to as much as $23,000, and the impressive works are on display until March 18th.
