Four Year-Old Aelita Andre Opens Solo Exhibition At New York's Agora Gallery

 

A little girl made a big splash in the New York art world this week.

 

Four year-old Aelita Andre, of Australia, opened her first solo exhibition at the Agora gallery in Chelsea, but she's already sold some of her paintings for more than $30,000 on the side, according to NBC News.

 

"I saw great colors, great movement, great composition and very playful, and I thought, 'This is fantastic,'" Agora gallery director Anglea Di Bello told NBC. "Who is this person? Only to find out, she's a child."

 

Di Bello even goes as far to tell The Telegraph that tiny Aelita's work is "abstract expressionism" and also "surrealist".

 

Aelita started painting before she was two years old. Michael Andre, the girl's father, said that at as early as nine-months, Aelita would crawl onto her parents' canvasses (both are artists) and begin to paint.

 

Aelita "often incorporates bark, twigs, children’s toys, bird feathers, and other found objects into her paintings, lending depth and texture to the overall effect. " according to The Agora Gallery's website. (see photos of the paintings here). Three paintings have already been sold for $27,000.

 

The precocious painter seems to relish the spotlight and on a recent trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with her family, amid works by Picasso and Monet, asked her parents "Where are my paintings?', according to NBC.

 

"The Prodigy of Color" will show at the Agora Gallery until the end of June.

 

 

 

Paying 30 grand for a painting by a four year old = UTTER fucking nonsense

I find it hard to pity people with more money than sense. I ain't mad, just bemused is all.

 

 

Leicester City Council 'not ready' for zombie attack

 

A worried member of the public has forced Leicester City Council to admit it is unprepared for a zombie invasion.

 

The authority received a Freedom of Information request which said provisions to deal with an attack, often seen in horror films, were poor.

 

The "concerned citizen" said the possibility of such an event was one that councils should be aware of.

 

"We've had a few wacky ones before but this one did make us laugh," said Lynn Wyeth, head of information governance.

 

The Freedom of Information Act allows a right of access to recorded information held by public authorities.

 

Ms Wyeth said she was unaware of any specific reference to a zombie attack in the council's emergency plan, however some elements of it could be applied if the situation arose.

 

Other submissions to the council have included requests for records of paranormal activity and haunted buildings within the city.

 

"To you it might seem frivolous and a waste of time... but to different people it actually means something," said Ms Wyeth.

 

"Everybody has their own interests and their own reasons for asking these questions."

 

She added high-profile cases, such as the MPs expenses scandal, has raised public awareness of the right to request information records.

 

Ed Thurlow, who runs zombie website Terror4Fun, said he felt a zombie invasion in Leicester was highly unlikely.

 

"I think perhaps [the "Concerned Citizen"] has watched films like 28 Days Later a few too many times."

 

 

Zombie letter in full

 

Dear Leicester City Council,

 

Can you please let us know what provisions you have in place in the event of a zombie invasion? Having watched several films it is clear that preparation for such an event is poor and one that councils throughout the kingdom must prepare for.

 

Please provide any information you may have.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Concerned Citizen

Analogy is one of the prime logical fallacies. It's like saying that a tiger is like a lion but with strips instead of a mane and bushy tail.
