Sometimes when we see amazing art it’s easy to just think “oh that person must be really gifted” but this progression gives hope that maybe anybody can create beautiful art if they are willing to put in the effort. Marc Allante has been making art since he could pick up a crayon and shared with Reddit an album showcasing a piece of art from almost every year from age 2 to his current 25 years of age. Each year his art grows a little more technical and then diverges into his unique style. It’s really awesome to see this artist’s journey laid out in picture form and would be interesting to see the childhood works from other highly regarded artists too.
Although all of these pieces are more advanced than I was at each age, the highest skill level I’ve reached is Marc’s at age 9, but it gives me hope that if I pursue it, there’s a chance I might be able to catch up to his work at age 11. Marc Allante is of French and Chinese descent and currently makes his art out of Hong Kong. To see more of his work, follow him on Facebook and support him by purchasing pieces on Society6.
