He has recently turned 14. This boy is known all over Great Britain and has long been hailed as a modern prodigy and “little Monet”. And the reason is not his beautiful eyes, but his extraordinary talent. So extraordinary that the comparison with Monet is not flattery to the boy, but a hint of the reincarnation of the great Impressionist.
One day, around 10 years ago, on one of the family holidays, the boy painted a landscape. Kieron Williamson took up painting when he was not even five. Most of his paintings depict the landscapes of the area around Norfolk, where he has spent his whole life, and Cornwall, his favorite place of rest. Apparently, he puts his soul into his paintings, because everything this schoolboy has expressed on canvas, struck many. He is already famous even in Japan, the USA and Germany, thanks to his art.
From the age of 8 the young artist began to sell his paintings in auctions. At the age of 9 he managed to sell 33 paintings for $235K in just 30 minutes. 23 of his works were sold to online buyers at a price of $300,000 in 20 minutes. This way the student of an elementary art school got rich by $2,2 million. All the income from the sale of his paintings go to his own company – Kieron Williams, Ltd. – the directors of which are his parents.
Today Kieron Williams is one of the richest children in the world and, obviously, one of the most famous kid artists. Prices for paintings by this young genius range from $3500 for a small watercolor, to $30,000 for a winter landscape, painted near his house in Norfolk.
Kieron’s first works appeared on the market in 2009. That year, 19 of his works were sold for $36,000 at a closed auction. With the proceeds from the sale Kieron was able to buy a new house for his family and himself. Also invest in the works of other artists, such as the English landscape painter Lawrence Stephen Lowry.
“Everyone in the field of art believes that his works have become noticeably better compared to last year. The last of his paintings are simply phenomenal. We do not put pressure on him. He paints, whenever he feels like painting”, his parents say.
Gallery manager Adrian Hill who was the one to oversee the sales, said: “I have seen how his skills have grown compared to last year. Seems he has risen to a new level”.
