Freeze | Jeric G. Asah – Evolving Artist from Darong

SEVENTEEN-year-old Jeric Gamiao Asah hails from Barangay Darong in the municipality of Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur. Darong became popular in recent history when San Miguel Corporation put up a brewery there. Sta. Cruz is about 134 years old – the oldest town in the province of Davao del Sur. The famous Philippine National Police Chief Ronald “Bato” Marapon dela Rosa was born and raised in Santa Cruz.

Jeric Asah may not be as popular as the PNP chief yet but he is beginning to make a mark in the art world as a pencil, ballpoint pen, and charcoal artist.

In 2010, his father passed away due to heart attack.

“We were shocked. I was only nine years old then. I remember my mother crying a lot but our family’s Islam faith helped us understand that it was Allah’s will,” Jeric said. “My elder brother took over the responsibilities of financially supporting my mother, my twin brother, and me by working hard in another country.”

Jeric is taking up a computer programming course at Brokenshire College Toril and dreams of becoming an animator and an architect. Drawing is his source of joy and he shares with his mother the income he gets from commissioned work.

This Generation Z sketcher has a strong belief in himself and the heavens that he will someday evolve into a successful artist.

Way to go, Jeric.
