Abstract painting has the power to address ideas and emotions at the deepest level. And Shorya Mahanot from India has been astounding people’s minds world over with his masterful brushstrokes, colorful composition and symmetry in abstract paintings, over the time of 6 years.
With a rare exhibit of signature style in his every other painting, this little boy has managed to sell about $40,000 worth of paintings internationally (as of now) but still focused on his work like a squirrel with a nut.
Hailed as the world’s youngest artist with 6 years of experience at a tender age of 10, he is the talent that art world is lapping up whenever he picks up the brush.
Ever since his first solo public exhibition at Mumbai’s Taj Mahal Palace Hotel at a young age of 4, he is more driven with his young energy to create paintings that are being exhibited and appreciated by institutions of repute. A featured artist in the Holtzman Gallery (New Jersey, U.S.A.), his work has been recognized and admired by eminent artists across India and the world. Globally, he got his work displayed along with the works of famous and senior artists such as John Lennon, Peter Max, Yaacov Agam, Burt Young, Anthony Quinn and many more.
For Shorya, painting is a passion around which his life revolves. Seeing him at his work, one might be tempted to compare him to a storyteller, weaving stories through colors.
There’s a whirling chaos underneath the little wings of this old soul that emerges and imprints itself on the canvas to create a legacy, one magnum opus at one time!
An artist draws inspiration from the world.
Please share your inspiring words to motivate the young talent that Shorya is.
