Autumn de Forest Art World Child Prodigy
Art World Child Prodigy Autumn de Forest
Seven-year-old Abstract Expressionist painter Autumn de Forest is taking the art world by storm. The diminutive Los Angeles artist routinely wins art competitions, even when pitted against adult painters.
Autumn normally creates large works, usually in the 4′ x 6′ range. De Forest bypasses the difficulty of painting a canvas larger than herself by placing it on the floor and working from its sides.
Paintings by Autumn de Forest impress the art-loving public as much as art critics. Her imaginative, color-drenched works often fetch high prices at auction, routinely beating out adult artists.
Autumn’s brilliance can be attributed to working from the unconscious, without a trace of the inhibition or self-doubt that can plague adult painters.
