Tribute : Edmund Thomas Clint, a Genius Child (1976-1983)

Edmund Thomas Clint an Indian child prodigy known for having drawn over 25,000 paintings in just 2522 days, Sadly, he lived only for 7 years ( May 19, 1976 – April 15, 1983) and passed away due to kidney failure. Clint Road in Kochi, Kerala is named after him.

But what he did in those 7 years is a work of sheer genius. At such a tender age, he had the creative bent of an artistic legend. Normally it would take years of analytical study and training to draw such paintings. His work has been displayed in exhibitions in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala in 1995 and 2007. At the age of 5, he secured first place in a competition held for painters below the age 18.

A biography, Clint – Nirangalude Rajakumaran (Clint – The Prince of Colors) was written about him. A Brief Hour of Beauty,another biography in English.

The 2007 Malayalam film Anandabhairavi, about a child prodigy was inspired by Clint’s life. Edmund Thomas Clint memorial painting competition for children was held at Kochi in his memory.

We pray for his soul to rest in peace.
