10-year art marvel paints Rolls-Royce and sells it for $450,000

A luxury Rolls-Royce hand-painted by a 10-year-old art prodigy has sold for a whopping $450,000 to a multi-millionaire collector.

Little painter Mikail Akar hails from Cologne and has taken the art world by storm with a series of art exhibitions – including his New York debut, Unbelievable, where he sold $80,000 worth of pieces.

The angelic ten-year-old has been compared to neo-expressionists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Jackson Pollock.

Having left his mark on the art world with his canvases, Mikail has turned his hand to a more expensive medium: luxury vehicles, which he gives a very personal and colorful twist by scribbling over their exteriors.

One of his most expensive four-wheeled marvels is a Rolls-Royce Cullinan, which typically sells for the eye-popping price of $350,000 – a fee that rose by a whopping $100,000 after Mikail put his artistic stamp on it.

After the young artist gave the car a custom hood paint job, covering it with an array of colorful and fun designs, it was then sold to an unnamed Rolls-Royce customer for nearly half a million dollars.

However, the Rolls isn’t the only vehicle to get Mikail’s Midas touch.

The youngster also painted three other classic cars – including a 1967 VW Bully, a 1967 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and a 1967 Mustang, which sold for $70,000.

“I enjoy it when it finds a new home and am happy that my art makes people happy,” Mikail told DailyMail.com.

The child painted the Rolls-Royce Cullinan along with four other vehicles at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Cologne in March.

The cars were then put on display last month at the five-star Althoff Grand hotel Schloss Bensberg, outside the German city of Cologne.

All vehicles were painted in the 10-year-old’s typical colorful expressionist style.

“Sometimes I know what I’m going to make, and sometimes I don’t,” Mikail said. ‘I like to draw and I paint what I see in my head.

“I’m thrilled when people buy my art.”

Mikail’s colorful creations have captivated the art world with buyers snapping up his works for tens of thousands of dollars. And Mikail keeps up with the times and is currently working with NFT network Element.

While still enjoying a typical childhood, playing football and making music, he has also found time to learn how to play the saxophone.

In addition to his work, he is currently making a 50-meter long canvas painting for a secret project.

Aside from his adventures as a creative artist, Mikail’s parents have kept him grounded by continuing to send him to school in Cologne and playing with his contemporaries and two younger siblings.

The young artist has been the toast of the international art circuit since he received hand paint and a canvas as a birthday present from his parents at the age of four. That’s how his parents discovered his rare talent and have steadfastly supported his burgeoning career ever since. .

He now commands between $8,000 and $16,000 for one of his colorful artworks.

Born in 2012, Mikail began his prolific artistic journey at the age of four and by the age of seven, he was making global headlines and being referred to as the ‘pre-school Picasso’, while also being compared to Pollack in his abstract art.

Soon Mikail had several exhibitions in cities all over Germany, including Cologne, DĂŒsseldorf, Berlin, Hamburg and Munich.

This led to an international career with other shows in Vienna, Zurich and Istanbul along with New York.

International art collectors fawned over the young artist and it wasn’t long before he started jet-setting around the world.

Earlier this year, Mikail showed his art at his exhibition ‘Unbelievable’ at the Rolf Benz Flagship Store in New York’s SoHo.

The exhibition consisted of 23 works on canvas and paper in various shapes and sizes.

His art was also included as part of the 2023 ArtExpo New York Fine Art Fair at Pier 36, where he held a live painting session at the Empire State Building with celebrated graffiti artist Luca.
