Meet Lola June, the 2-Year-Old Whose Art Is Selling for $1,000
March 14, 2019
Lola June is only 2 years old, but she’s becoming the breadwinner in her home. The little girl is quickly taking over the New York art scene, where her acrylic paintings go from anywhere between $300 to $1,600, according to a New York Post article.
Lola June can thank Pajtim Osmanaj for her sudden rise to fame. Osmanaj, an artist himself, is a friend of the girl’s mom, Lucille Javier. He noticed a star quality in Lola June’s creations one night when they had dinner together and soon after wrote to the nonprofit arts organization Chashama, petitioning for Lola to be featured at the gallery, the New York Post says.
It worked. Earlier this year, the toddler had her own art exhibit at Chashama Gallery in NYC titled “Hope.” The exhibit featured 37 canvas pieces which “astounded” visitors, according to Chashama founder Anita Durst.
“People have been calling us to buy her artwork and wanting to know how to get it and some stars have been buying her artwork,” Durst tells Good Morning America.
We’ll have to wait and see what’s next for the little Picasso-in-the-making. But by the looks of her Instagram account, she’s been hard at work.
