‘Mini Monet’ child prodigy set to become a millionaire after selling latest collection for staggering £250,000
The schoolboy prodigy Kieron Williamson, nicknamed the ‘Mini Monet’, has once again astounded the art world after his latest collection of 24 paintings sold for £250,000 in just 15 minutes.
Kieron, nine, from Norfolk is famous for creating the masterpieces in record time. Two small pastels he drew in just minutes sold for £6,000 and £7,000; whilst two landscapes priced at £34,950 each were quickly snapped up by buyers.
The traditional landscapes and seascapes of Britain aren’t just popular in the UK as the auction drew bidders from across the globe. Next Friday, Kieron is due to sell another ten works for an estimated price tag of £100,000.
Amazingly he is almost exclusively self-taught having begun painting on a family holiday in Cornwall aged five and he has only taken around two dozen formal lessons.
Kieron isn’t really interested in his fortune but told the Daily Mail of his future plans: “I would like to like to go to other countries to paint and experience different lights. And I want to explore Norfolk, Cornwall and Scotland a bit more.”
Mum Michelle adds: “He no longer gets up at 6am and knocks out a painting before school. He would rather watch TV and play about - but he still loves painting and does two or three a week.
“He is not quite as prolific as he used to be because he is busy with his homework and is in the school football team. He makes sure that he has time for all the other things he enjoys.”
