izzy at the motor city

Tonight's show featured detroit artist izzy alo. Did I mention that this young artist...is actually in grade school! I am not sure her exact age (I am horrible when it comes to guessing kid's ages - I tend to just show how tall they are and hope that the person understands height = age), but I would guess izzy is 7. It is funny because this work was still better than a lot of shows I have been too. It kind of reminded me of LA art, where established artists go back to drawing like a child. There is something very wholesome about looking at a child's work.

good stuff. but why is it that when kids do art everyone thinks its cute. But when kids do medical procedures like brain surgery or drive a car on the freeway, everyone shits hamsters and cries bloody murder.

Kids art is very refreshing. I have been working with kids for seven years now and they kick adults asses quite often! Less boudaries, less judgement and more
energy!! I would just caution that the child not get into making products..
