THERE ARE OTHER PAINTINGS OF NON RELIGIOUS THEMATICS ON THE WEB SITE. LET US KNOW HOW WE MAY HELP.
I would probably actually believe this if they -videotaped- her working on something. But until then...I`m neutral.
1- There is nothing wrong with my terminology, not everything is about you, and I don`t know why you took what I said so personally for yourself. There were others who claimed to be athiest, those were the people I was addressing.2- You don`t know that she didn`t do the paintings, or that she had a spiritual transformation. That is, dare I say, A GENERALIZED STEREOTYPE to think that she couldn`t and can`t.
This is exactly what I meant about religion haters. They sure can dish it, but they can`t take it at all.
"And to all the haters who don`t believe she has talent, or that her parents do it for her, you are JEALOUS. So jealous you`ll pick on a 10 year old`s art over the internet. She`s a prodigy, who wants to thank God for her gifts. The same way any sports player, or celebrity would."
Of course we`re jealous! Isn`t that obvious??? Or at least, if we aren`t jealous, we wish we could paint like that. Those are some amazing paintings. I have absolutely no artistic talent and I would love to have the skill expressed in those paintings.
They just aren`t painted by her.
And how does the daughter of two atheists undergo "spiritual transformation" at four years old??
1) Stop writing outrageously generalized, stereotypical statements2) Get your terminology right3) Stop writing outrageously generalized, stereotypical statements
And you`re jumping to conclusions that supposedly all people with the slightest "disrespect" for devout Christianity are satan-worshipping, atheist nerd/emo goths. I have little or no "faith" if you want to call it that, and while I don`t think this is entirely being "shoveled down our throats" I too grow tired of people quoting God-this and god-that.
And to all the haters who don`t believe she has talent, or that her parents do it for her, you are JEALOUS. So jealous you`ll pick on a 10 year old`s art over the internet. She`s a prodigy, who wants to thank God for her gifts. The same way any sports player, or celebrity would.
I`ve known about her for awhile, she`s an amazing artist, and I hope to see more from her in the future. She`s beautiful, talented, and obviously gifted. MWUAH to her.
yeah....a humble carpenter, i think i heard that somewhere before. oh! she converted her athiest family at age 4!! amazing. d`ya think they made her toast and tied her shoes afterwards?
just cause she says its God inspired doesnt mean it is. if it is, then more power to her and her believers. theres been more than a few people who have cashed in on His name before tho. for all you that belive its true cause she mentions God, i think Jimmy Swaggart is still looking for donations
Oh and I think her poetry is a far greater measure of her self-proclaimed genius. Take a look for yourself; if it`s genuinely hers then at least I`ll congratulate her for her early grasp of pretension but if her mentors have given her a helping hand then this increases the humour value ten-fold.
I don`t know if I believe she actually paints them or not. Some people are just naturally gifted. Singing, mathematics, writing, lots of things. Me and my brother both began to read at high levels, way younger than the expected ages.
Still, I`d love to see a video of her actually painting (seeing artists create things before my eyes makes me appreciate it even more.)
In regards to the whole "God is my inspiration" controversy, I do think that her words may seem a little holier-than-thou, but when you think of the other in your face Christians who are a ton worse than her, it`s nothing much. I myself am a Christian who, although I`ve had many bumps along the way, is determined to stay so. I firmly believe in God but that doesn`t mean that every other sentance I say comes with the word God in it. I hope that you all remember that Christians are just people with different beliefs than you, and we don`t want to get put-down anymore than anybody else.
Bloing: That`s just mean
diemorondie: she also writes poetry and has a great understanding of writting. Some people are just born geniuses I guess. (and you`re acting like a Noob)
Totari: Painters often apply undertones before the actual colour goes down to give depth and a tint of a different colour, this might be an explanation.
Religion Bashers: Why do you hate religion so much? Sure there are people who distort religion, and use it for their own means, but thats not the fault of the religion is it? It`s the fault of the people who distorted it! Be angry at those people if you want, but it`s the people who really believe in the teachings are the ones who WON`T shove it down your throat, and get bashed the most for other people`s idiocy.
God`s Final Message to His Creation: "We apologize for the inconvenience"
but did she really paint them...i mean has anyone seen her paint them, coz i havent?
jtc970 : Atheists do believe in things, they first believe in their kids, family and friends, and in human kind. I`d be glad to discuss about that, but i-a-b isn`t the right place for it. http://www.barchezmo.net/fun07/011.jpg
Her concepts of color, anatomy, perspective and composition are too keen for a young kid. There`s a line between talent and skill, and it takes skill to do that kind of thing. skill is built up over many many years of repition and practice...
Besides, it says she used oils. What parent in their right mind would expose their kid to all the chemcals used while working with oils? Turpentine is horrible. Just do a bit of research on whats used during oil painting...
As for the Christian thing. I can`t wait `till she`s a teenager, and rebels against her parents after seeing how much they used her.
Now that will be good art.
You took the words right out of my mouth, Bloing.
I couldn`t care less why people believe what they believe but this is some of the dumbest logic ever. Air can be measured, felt, and seen given the correct tools. Faith is an abstract concept for describing the belief in something intangible. Stop comparing apples to oranges.
Maybe it`s just the lighting (or she simply changed it after) but on the art page (http://www.artakiane.com/akiane_art.htm... in the large photo of her painting I see differences between the painting in the photo and further down on the page. The eyes are a different colour, for instance.
theres been people practicing their whole life and not been able to do what she does, it`s god given or nature given, this girl is talented.
Belief in any god should be punishable by torture. Remember, religion and stupidity are synonymous.
I wish I could paint like that
