Teaching that a good story about an artist is more important money wise than actual skill is a lesson plus most high end art is done for money laundering is another.

Eh, the kid has some good sense of design and shape. Sure it's stylistically imitative, but he's not bad at doing it.

The wealthy jeweler Elsa Valencia?

Nothing against the kid, but something tells me it's not his name selling $100k paintings

Fine art is just a front for money laundering

Kids who are involved in arts education are somewhere like ten times more likely to make a living with their art than scholastic athletes.

Just sayin'.

I have two kids under 10 that love drawing and one is pretty good at sketching. I am just lacking friends with art galleries, art collections and disposable cash to make this happen.

"I would get cut from a team-I played on six teams in seven years, so that happened a lot-so I would go back into the locker room and ask the players if they wanted their portraits painted,"

Terry Crews sells art.

A wealthy and famous social circle including celebrities and art gallery owners is a *kind* of art supply, I guess.

He was only five foot three and girls could not resist his stare
Nevertheless, this born-on-third-base kid is kind of an asshole.

"Valencia got his start selling watercolors for around $20 to family friends, per the Times. Bernie Chase, owner of Chase Contemporary, was one of them. He raised his offer on one work to $100, and Andres countered with a request for $5,000. Chase obliged.

He's a rich kid who's rich parents got their friends to start buying his "artwork" to get his name in the press.

Like every other nepotism baby ever.

A school kid's art should not cost more than the Subzero refrigerator it's hanging on.
