Hamzah Marbella-a child prodigy


I am now 32 years old but if you would ask me to paint a sunflower or a garden, I guess I can crudely produce one that would pass for a kindergarten level of work.
But watching on tv about what Hamzah Marbella can do totally blew me away that an epiphany hit me: this little guy really deserves credit. Which happily prompted me to submit an entry about him on the Ellen DeGeneres show website.

Check out what this young soul has achieved: (From Jessica Fenol's blog:
http://badgefenol.blogspot.com/2007/11/future-of-philippine-art-scene-whiz-kid.html )

Hamzah Marbella. Born March 31, 2001, eight-year-old Marbella is already an artist to reckon with in the field of visual arts. With over 40 local and international recognitions, he is the youngest member of the Artists Association of the Philippines.

Hamzah started painting at the age of 2, formally joined competitions at the age of four. At his young age, he is already a recipient of almost 50 awards (local and international). The most recent was from Korea's stamp making contest this November. SOme of his works are also displayed at the UN head quarters in New York City.

Although he received scholarships from prominent schools, it seems like he is still lacking with necessary support. Nevertheless, Cavite's local government already acknowledge this genious, he also appeared in some TV stations and newspapers alike. But what this young painter needs is support from our government. Sir Renato: "Nakakalungkot lang kasi ang napopromote lang yung mga artists na mayayaman kahit hindi masyadong magagaling". I hope artists like Hamzah will be given enough support and proper credit.

You can reach Hamzah through his parents MR. Renato - 09206266163 and Mrs. Elma - 09282626135.

Please be one with me in praying that Hamzah would be recognized worldwide thru the Ellen DeGeneres show and that he will have support in whatever means so that he would be able to grow as an artist and create a difference in this world thru his talent.

PS. Attached below is an e-mail I sent to wikipedia asking them to come up with an article about our wonderboy:

Hello,

He is very much googable which puzzled me why you have no article of him. But considering the tons of work your organization is undertaking, I can understand why.

Please, please, by acknowledging his work, you are helping him achieve his highest potential.

Happy Holidays and best regards,
Ruth Chase
