OKEMOS, Mich. (WLNS) – They’re 10 year-old twins with talent and today they showcased it.

Max and Louis Boyang were discovered last year by a local artist and have since created an array of artwork.

“I, I just couldn’t believe it,” said Vivian Dwyer; Art teacher for the twins.

Vivian is a local artist and was left speechless when she discovered 10 year-old prodigies, Max and Louis Boyang a little over a year ago.

“Louis was the first one I noticed he…I had him draw a tree he just was showing me what he could do and I looked and I said 9 year old trees don’t look like that,” Dwyer mentioned.

These twins have a gift so rare that it surprises everyone that sees their artwork for the first time.

“Vivian said I got chills, I couldn’t believe I have never seen anybody this age do this kind of thing,” Mother of Max & Louis; Heidi Ma stated.

Where Louis has a specialty drawing or painting flowers…

“Louis can see a flower once in his life or a field and it comes right out,” said Dwyer.

Max…visualizes more abstract art like bugs and animals.

“It really makes me, it really makes me happy,” Max Boyang mentioned with a big grin across his face.

Locals enjoy the brothers’ art so much that the twins decided to host an art show.

“They started coming twice a week at night and they have this fabulous show with about 40 pieces,” Dwyer stated.

Whether they’re selling pictures of bumblebees or sunflowers, what makes this show so special is that all money raised goes towards cancer research.

“We’re giving all of it to the Joey’s Wings Child Cancer Foundation,” said Louis Boyang.

“We’re doing a silent auction…whatever they can give, they’ll give,” Dwyer mentioned.

The twins don’t have a number in mind, but they do hope their intricate artwork will help change the lives of those who need it the most.

“It’s a gift they’re born with it and they’re both absolutely amazing,” said Dwyer.

During the silent auction at Sunday’s art show, the first bidding brought in approximately $3,500 for the Boyang twins artwork. These 10 year old brothers are continuing to take bids until Thursday. If you would like more information about their masterpieces, visit www.theartypartystudio.net.
