Artist Autumn de Forest Appears on Australia’s ‘Sunrise’

Autumn de Forest recently brought her unique artistic perspective to Sydney to brighten the mornings of more than 2.6 million Australian viewers.

The 16-year-old art prodigy appeared live on “Sunrise,” the top morning news show in Australia, on December 18 to discuss her career and what inspires her artwork.

The “Sunrise” appearance marks the first time de Forest appeared in studio on the popular news show. The young artist first appeared on “Sunrise” remotely when she was 8 years old, and again in February earlier this year.

De Forest is a descendant of a long line of American artists and has been painting since she was 5 years old. She has sold more than $7 million in artwork and is the youngest artist with Park West Gallery.

Autumn concentrates while using her “pull painting” technique.

When asked if she finds it challenging to continue creating art after starting at such an early age, de Forest told the hosts she doesn’t feel pressure to constantly produce.

“For me it’s just having fun,” de Forest said. “It’s just expressing myself and expressing my feelings on canvas.”

De Forest, a self-taught artist, creates vivid and thought-provoking paintings through traditional methods as well as techniques she devised herself. Many of her works draw inspiration from famous artists, including Grant Wood, Andy Warhol, and Jackson Pollock.

De Forest has accomplished many great feats during her career, including winning an award from the Vatican, where she presented her artwork to Pope Francis, and most recently, de Forest was named one of Teen Vogue’s “21 Under 21.” Her artwork is collected around the world and has been featured in solo museum exhibitions in the United States.

“Autumn already has a career that artists triple her age can only dream of,” said co-host Samantha Armytage.

De Forest is no stranger to appearing on television. She has been featured on ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC news shows as well as appearances on “The Wendy Williams Show” and a Discovery Channel special.
