“We All Have Ability” by Dutch artist Pee-Jay Czifra-Malawau
Pee-Jay found his inspiration for “We All Have Ability” in performing artist Stevie Wonder. And for good reason; a united messenger of peace, Stevie Wonder is one of the most critically and commercially successful musical performers of the late 20th century.
Especially Stevie’s quote “We All Have Ability. The difference is how we use it.” was on Pee-Jay’s mind as he was painting this contemporary portrait.
“We All Have Ability” is part of Pee-Jay’s Concrete-series. Pee-Jay: “In this series, I paint portraits of some of the most spiritual, charismatic and strong icons of our world. Symbolizing a strong foundation, the concrete represents their power and strength.”
