Clint - The Prince of Colors

Edmund Thomas Clint (1976-1983), was an Indian child prodigy. His life was marked by his ability to draw over 25,000 paintings. Clint was the only child of MT Joseph, Chinnamma Joe and Chinnamma. Clint Eastwood was his name. He enjoyed painting traditional Hindu events and festivals near his Kochi, Kerala home. He was six years old when he died from kidney failure in 1983. However, he left behind more than 25,000 artworks. Drawing such paintings would normally require years of training and analysis. His work was displayed at two exhibitions in Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala, in 1995 and 2007. He was just five years old when he won first prize in a competition for artists under the age of 18.
