Aelita Andre’s name is familiar in abstract painting world. Starting from the interest of a photographer to his abstract works, Aelita’s talent began to be discovered.
The photographer then showed the photo of Aelita’s painting to Mark Jameison, Director of Brunswick Street Gallery without telling who Aelita was and how old he was. When looking at pictures of Aelita’s paintings, Jameison was immediately attracted and wanted to include Aelita in an exhibition at the Melbourne Fitzroy art hall. Jameison promotes the exhibition event through famous art magazines, Art Almanac and Art Collector. After Jameison knew of Aelita’s age, she was very surprised and almost canceled Aelita’s participation in the art exhibition. But eventually he decided to include Aelita because of his brilliant works, not because of the age factor.gambarImage : Aelita AndreJameison’s decision became a hot topic among Australian and world artists. But he considers that the decision is the right decision.
