Video Premiere: Autumn de Forest: Portrait of a Young Artist

Being a world-renowned artist may not leave much time for socializing, but art prodigy Autumn de Forest still finds time to be a teenager.

“I love to hang out with my friends, I love to go to movies, have sleepovers, that kind of thing,” Autumn says.

The latest video from Park West Gallery profiles the young artist, delving into her inspirations, techniques, and some of her favorite past times when she’s not painting.

Autumn de Forest concentrates while using her “pull painting” technique.

Born in 2001, Autumn’s artwork has captured the attention of collectors worldwide during her short career. At age 8, she sold $100,000 worth of paintings in 16 minutes at a February 2010 auction.

Autumn, a descendant of numerous American artists, draws inspiration from iconic 20th-century artists such as Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, and Jackson Pollock.
