SP recognizes Pacquiao painter

ALABEL, Sarangani (February 2, 2021) – Vice Governor Elmer de Peralta and the members of the 10th Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) give recognition to Melvin Lorca Polea, a local artist from barangay Kawas, the man behind the 4x5.5ft oil-based painting of the People’s Champ, Senator Manny Pacquiao, during the 4th Regular Session on February 2 at the Capitol gym. According to Polea, Senator Manny Pacquiao is his inspiration for his artwork “because siya man gud akong gina look-up as a role model tungod sa iyang contributions dili lang sa boxing ring, pati sad sa pagtabang niya sa mga tao especially sa mga kabus.” The 10th Sanggunian also commended Polea’s talent and his dedication in making his artwork. Polea said he is looking forward to meeting Senator Pacquiao soon in hopes of having his artwork autographed by the senator himself.
