Where Is This Child Prodigy Today? | Where Are They Now | Oprah Winfrey Network

Who is this? This is my self portrait
that I did this when I was eight years old with acrylics. Eight was a big year for you. Oh my goodness. I don’t know what nine’s going
to bring, but this is huge. So this is a
self-portrait of you? AKIANE: Yes. OPRAH: This is how
you see yourself? What did you do, take a picture? Or did you– how
do you do yourself? AKIANE: Well, I just take a
mirror and I look at myself. And if I don’t find the right
color, I just dab it on my nose and see if it’s the right color. OPRAH: Oh, yeah. I do that too. You’re obviously gifted, right? Where does this come from? It comes from God. It comes from God. AUDIENCE: Aw. OPRAH: Thank you so much. You know it. When Akiane appeared
on our stage, she’d already created over
40 pieces, some selling for as much as $25,000. And so, we recently Skyped
with her– she’s now 21– to see what she’s creating now. AKIANE: Right after
the Oprah Winfrey Show, I was complete– my whole
world completely changed. There was phone calls
coming left and right. And it’s very interesting to
be thrusted into the spotlight at such a young age. When I first realized I
was interested in painting, I was about four years old. At that age, I began
expressing my dreams, my visions, and my
inspiration through whatever I found on hand. I did notice, over the
years, since I’m maturing, the techniques have become
more detailed and more vivid. I can paint soulscapes, which
is my artistic interpretation of the soul’s journey. Being an artist did
actually give us the financial starts to
provide for my whole family and for others. Since the Oprah Winfrey
Show, my paintings have been selling for hundreds
of thousands of dollars apiece. While I was living in
Lithuania, I had the opportunity to help the educational
government to change the laws there to have
more creative education and to be able to give ideas
and to give suggestions. Actually currently, I’m funding
my own art and science academy. What I know for sure in life
is that I truly, truly believe, after travelling and
experiencing a lot of culture and meeting a lot of people,
that the arts has the ability– a rare ability– to unite and
inspire every single one of us.

  1. Wow, I felt I could actually touch those curls & stroke the young man's beautiful locks, so tangible the curls on his hair!
    The painting calls out to me that it's been painted like u are painting your soul mate – I hope you two will find each other soon x 🙋

  2. I’m an artist and I’m still in shock on the level she was painting at her early age. ♥️♥️♥️♥️

  3. Nosotros somos lo que Dios nos da.A ella le a dado un gran talento para pintar. EL le guia su mano para hacer bellísimas obras.Ella es una chica buena chica y Dios la ama!

  4. She is awesome! Even though she wasn’t from a religious family she gives her talent credit where it belongs.

  5. I love her so much is is an angel 👼 she is so wonderful!!!…😎❤️👌🏼💯😍👏🏻😘🍀👍🏼😱🥰😮😄☺️😃😆😀😁👩‍🎨🖼

  6. Giving Credit to God is always a wonderful thing for you talents, but show the truth, God is not "White", Right?… tell always the truth of what you were shown'd not what someone else say you should paint, he loves you anyway, but always remember the truth…no matter what… it is… May God always Bless you and your Family… little one, he knows your Heart… Amen and Amen…

  7. I seen a lady that had died and came back and she said that the one portrait of the man at the beginning, is what Jesus really looks like.

  8. can't stop laughing. Some people still think Jesus looked like a jew? Read the bible! he was black!This is so fake

  9. i could draw something like hers if I spent about 50 to 100 hours straight.

    I am good no thanks

  10. Hey I know where that photo at 2:15 was taken! That's the sunken garden at Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC. Or perhaps it's another photo-realistic painting by Akiane. 🙂


  12. I don't like the fact that people, actually believe in "god"?…I think she is just good at what she practices.

  13. So many diffrent story about her. Her voice sound so dramatic and dramatic song. Mostly all the video show her painting when a paint it's finished and when she is painting never show her face. So many quetion. ???????. Jesus hair have a model style from 1980 and if God give a gift of painting to her and painting cost millions of money. Why she's not help poor people. So God just want to help her to get rich what about other people in this world with good heart and still very poor. God help her to be a billionaire but in the bible said: It not possible for rich people get to heave. They are not welcome to heaven. ????. Come on people please read the bible and educated your self about this planet, universes, religion and secret organization than want you to believe all this lies and scam.

  14. Waoooo. God just decide to bless one girls of so many good girls in this world. No fear. Fake God. God help her but she no helping nobody with all those millions of money. Just her and her family. What a selfish story.

  15. I'm sure the Illuminati have got her by now. Show us those Pyramid and all seeing eye paintings…Such a shame, what a gift…

  16. I love that her art is actually good. Can’t stand it when artwork that looks like it has been painted by a 4 year old ,with special needs, is valued in the hundreds of thousands.

  17. You have 'skin rings' in your eyes Akiane. Those are the outer dark rings in your eyes. It's in Iridiology. Look up Mark James Gordon's Youtube to improve them! Blessings

  18. God deserves the credit…he/she gave us AIDS,tuberculosis, wars, famines, catastrophes on the universal scales….his/her gifts are BOUNDLESS….

  19. Came from a different video of a toddler putting random colors on a canvas and there’s actually a child prodigy of art

  20. I was pleased to see that she gave credit to God for her talent when she was young. But in the video at her 21 years old, she didn't mention God much!! I hope she is still honoring God for her gifts!

  21. Women tend to be jealous of women that have better bodies or are prettier than them but to me this is what makes me jealous someone that has a amazing talent. I have no artistic abilities so to me that is something to be more jealous of then what someone looks like!

  22. Wow now that’s talent, but Jesus is not god, he was the messager of God and since he was from Hebrew background he definitely didn’t look white. I am not trying to diss her, she was a kid and didn’t know and most people sometimes don’t realize it.

  23. Jesus loves ! Why wish on a star when you can believe ! And have faith that something will happened. Jesus loves you all come to him John 3:16 “ For God so loves the world that he sent his one and only son that whoever shall believe in him (Jesus) shall not perish but have enteral life” – world meaning the people is whom he loves. Jesus loves you so much that he died on the cross and he was sinless but took upon our mistakes, iniquities and sins, so that you may truly live through him. start now by simply believing and having trust and faith in him. Find a bible based church who believes that Jesus is Lord
