New Artist Is Found – level 3

20-04-2021 15:00

When Mona Osman began waiting tables at a London gallery café at the age of 19, her colleagues had no idea about her artistic talents.

She worked there for years, seeing other artists’ work on display, and now her solo show hangs in the gallery where her paintings came to the attention of one of the world’s most famous art dealers.

Charles Saatchi likes Mona’s work so much that he has already bought six pieces. Mona was over the moon when she heard the news.

Charles Saatchi certainly knows how to spot artistic talent, having helped launch the careers of artists like Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin, and it seems that Mona may be destined to follow in their footsteps. He has already asked her to work on some larger pieces.

Difficult words: colleague (someone that you work with), be over the moon (be extremely happy), launch (start), be destined (certain to do something).
