Joe is a 9-year old boy and has already paved his way in the world of art with his talent. With his parents' support the young man now doodles his ideas on a restaurant's wall and with his profile on LinkedIn, he has already garnered 1,500,000 views and comments.
Joe is a 9-year old kid who loves drawing. His parents knew well, their son's passion for drawing and encouraging their kid to not give up on his passion, they decided to send their kid to an after-school art class. Joe's teacher loved his work and posted his work on social media which in turn led to something amazing. Number 4, a restaurant in Shrewsbury, contacted Joe’s teacher to ask if the nine-year-old could come to the building and decorate the dining room with his drawings.
Every day after school, Joe's dad drives him to the restaurant where the kid draws his ideas on the wall and the drawings stay there permanently. Dad Greg said: ‘Joe is a really talented little boy, he’s excelling at school, he’s a great footballer and cricketer, but drawing is definitely what he is most passionate about.
‘It’s actually quite annoying, he’s better than me at most things. ‘He was in school getting frustrated at the little amount of art he could do so he used to doodle on the table’s whiteboard in class and get into trouble for doodling ‘His mum and I decided to get him into an art class outside of school called Bloom, he’s been there for about six weeks and he loves every minute of it.'
Greg added, ‘His drawings blew his teacher away and they gave him his own wall to keep doodling on which he does every week when he goes there. ‘A few weeks into his classes, his teacher asked if she could post his work on her Instagram for everyone to see and a short while later we got another call from her about a restaurant who had seen his work.'
‘They wanted to get Joe into their restaurant to complete an art piece on their wall, and it was in their main dining area, we were over the moon. ‘I asked Joe and he of course leapt at the chance to do it so we have been going there after school where for a couple of hours a night he’ll put his creativity on their wall. ‘Joe loves doodling and we’re so proud of everything he’s achieving, the fact that a completely independent business has asked our nine-year-old son to do a professional piece of work for them is incredible.’
The proud dad has posted his son's work on LinkedIn and it has already garnered 1,500,000 views and comments.
Commenting on his student's work, Joe's art teacher Kerry said, ‘I first met Joe several weeks ago, he was a bit frustrated at school because he couldn’t doodle as much as he wanted to and had been asked to stop,’ said Kerry.
‘I asked his parents for some of his work to assess his level and could not believe what I was looking at, we moved him into an older class straight away. ‘His work is very exact and immaculate, it’s very balanced, he goes straight to ink and creates perfect work straight from the start, no practising beforehand.’
