Lola June is NYC’s hottest and youngest artist. At only two years of age, Lola has shown her work at multiple galleries and has been featured on several media outlets, CBS New York, The Cut, The Times UK. She’s totally making the rounds and is selling work in the process. I had the opportunity to document the final night of her gallery show where they had an “artist talk” with Pajtim, the curator that discovered Lola, and Lola’s godmother, Laura.
I was introduced to Lola June and Pajtim Osmanaj through my friend Marissa. Pajtim says “I first noticed her drawings using marker on paper and was in awe of her perfect abstract composition in my mind. She caught my attention and I wanted to help her explore with more mediums such as acrylics and pastels on canvas”.
It’s been exciting to watch Lola’s story unfold from week to week. Who knows where she will end up next.
