Michael Volpicelli's portrait Malala Yousafzai

Artist Michael Volpicelli has a passion for art and peace. His unique portraits use the words of notable peacemakers to create their likenesses. He says, “All these figures suffered horrible hardships within their life yet found a way to remain positive and promote growth with non-violent means.” To create his portrait of Malala Yousafzai, he used the speech that she gave to the United Nations.
