While talking to the media, Advait’s mom, Shruti Kolarkar, who is also a well-known commercial artist, disclosed how his son took up the paintbrush when he was just 12 months old.
She goes on to explain how even his artworks were not merely a play with colours but creations with a sense of composition and colour. She adds, how each of his canvases with titles like “Supernova” and “Jellyfish” is a wash of well-composed colour, thickly layered by hand and brush.
“Every stroke, every layer is his feelings, his expression,” she stated.
Shruti also told that how her son’s work is natural and he works on his own without anyone’s assistance.
Shruti had approached Bernard Cormier, the city’s Cultural official shortly after shifting to Canada about showcasing Advait’s work at a local library.
Cormier who got astonished by Advait’s super talent comprehended that his special work is worthy of a momentous exhibition. It was Cormier who trusted that the boy could be the youngest Canadian to display his works of art.
While talking to media people, he stated, “I’ve never seen someone that age dabble in the paint in the way that he does. I’ve been exposed to artwork all my life, and I see something special in this young boy, so why not encourage him?”
Shruti is delighted at how her hard-working son’s special work is getting praised by one and all.
An elated mother said, “His happiness is very important to us. We want him to enjoy art the way he is enjoying it now throughout his life.”
