Painting: Oil, Gold Leaf on Canvas.
Some heroes are for real even if our illusion of our golden self trumps the reality of our existence. This portrait of Malala (oil on canvas and 24 karat gold leaf) is a painting in my hopefully endless series of iconic golden portraits. I started painting iconic portraits by painting portraits with a gold leaf background. My evolution led me in a big loop ending almost to my starting point with one crucial difference - now I paint the background and do the actual portrait in 24 karat gold leaf.
