At 7-years-old, most kids are learning to read, still fascinated by Paw Patrol, and draw people with lines for bodies.
But Mikail Akar is not your average 7-year-old.
The German kid as an incredible talent for combining colors on canvases that have led him to being labeled the “Preschool Picasso”. His first work of art 3 years ago was so impressive, that the boy’s father was convinced his wife had painted it. Now Mikail is exhibiting his pieces at private galleries in Berlin, with one of his favorite “techniques” being punching the canvas with his dad’s boxing glove.
So does Mikail see himself as the next Jackson Pollock? Not quite… “When I’m older I want to be a football player,” he says. “Painting is quite tiring for me. Sometimes it can take a long time… especially with boxing gloves.”
Currently, some of Mikail’s work has fetched up to $12,000. That’s a lot of pocket money.
