Teo Veliz, a member of the Slanguage Juniors Drawing Class, could be the world’s youngest art collector. Teo started collecting paintings and drawings at age 8, and is now 10 years old. When asked why he started collecting, he responds that a colorful painting caught his eye and he decided to buy it. He continues to choose new pieces based on what he likes. Collecting also spurred the idea to encourage Slanguage to start a drawing class for kids his age. Thanks Teo! His most recent acquisition is a painting called High Five by Mario Lopez, A.K.A. Dred, who recently showed in the Slanguage Gallery.
