Dubbed Mini Monet by the British press, the child artist recently sold 33 pieces at an exhibition in 30 minutes for a total of $235,000.

Collectors worldwide want to own one of the boy's impressionistic landscapes of estuaries, snowy fields and wide marshland skies. The NY Post reported that there is waiting list of 300 patrons of the art who want to own an original Kieron Willamson in their collection. He already has more than 1,800 followers in 35 countries.
