Jordan Belfortis the proud new owner of a piece of art history, because he bought it from the youngest person ever to have a booth at “Art Miami.”
The “Wolf of Wall Street” dropped a fat stack on some artwork from rising artist Andres Valencia — the 10-year-old responsible for a 29″ x 11″ work he’s entitled, “King and Queen.”
Jordan tells TMZ … he paid $8,500 for the piece after being blown away by Andres’ talent. He also says Andres sketched him something on the spot, a work Belfort describes as “shockingly interesting.”
It’s no wonder Andres is the youngest artist ever to have his work on display at the famous “Art Miami” gallery. Jordan says when looking at Andres’ work he asked himself, “What on God’s Earth is this kid seeing when he picks up his instrument to draw and paint?”
Art pieces are some of the hottest investments right now … and Jordan says Andres’ eye is “obviously something very different than the rest of us.”
Channing Tatum also stopped by Andres’ booth this week during Art Basel … posing in front of his works the night before the Wolf swooped in to scoop some up.

We’re told Andrew is donating part of the proceeds he earns at “Art Miami” to the Perry J. Cohen Foundation … which is devoted to advancing kids in the arts, entrepreneurship, boat safety and environmental preservation and education.
