Indian Child Prodigy Shorya Mahanot

Posted on Jul 22, 2013 by in Articles |


It seems child prodigies are becoming more common by the day. I recently mentioned the 3 year old artist prodigy Iris Grace Halmshaw and looked at what grown up artists could learn from the mini artists. Well here’s another artist prodigy, a 6 year old boy from India named Shorya Mahanot.

At six years old he’s already a pro, having had his first solo exhibition at age 4. His abstract expressionist work has been compared to Jackson Pollock, which would probably make poor old Mr Greenberg roll over in his grave ;-)

“In visual arts, prodigies don’t count. In music and literature, yes, but not in art.” Clement Greenberg
