Kieron Williamson (born on August 4, 2002) is a watercolour artist who became the world’s youngest successful painter by selling his 16 watercolors for £17,000 in just 14 minutes at an exhibition in 2009. Williamson is from Holt, Norfolk of England. His passion for paintings was prominent by the age of six and his knowledge of advanced shading and perspective in his painting caused huge attention of the UK media. In July 2010, Williamson exhibited his work in Holt. This time he achieved another landmark by selling all his painting within 30 minutes for £150,000. In 2011 November, in yet another exhibition, his 33 paintings were sold again within 10 minutes with a total value of £100,000. In the same exhibition, his most beautiful painting Istanbuls’ Suleymaniye Mosque was alone sold for £15,595.
Kieron Williamson developed his passion for painting on a family holiday in Devon and Cornwall. He asked his parents to give him paper to draw a boat and very soon he developed his own matured sense for colors and shadings. His talent for seascapes and pastoral scenes makes him unique and as original as the “young Picasso”.
