The Next Picasso?

Meet Hamad Al Humaidhan, a 10-year-old British schoolboy who is being hailed around the globe as the next Picasso. According to BBC News, he has "stunned the art world by producing paintings that look like Picasso's". He hasn't stunned Coxsoft Art. I've always claimed that any child could produce tripe like Picasso's. Hamad is a charming lad, despite the affectation of a French beret, and I wish him well. I just hope all this misplaced adulation from ignorant art pundits doesn't deter him from attending art school when he's older and learning how to paint.
