PEACE PILGRIM is part of the art exhibition curated by Queen of Hearts Productions Inc and featured at PeaceRaiser 6.  Guest of the PeaceRaiser will be able to see this work at Hudson Terrace on May 16, 2019.


 16 x 20 Acrylic / Peace on canvas.


The artist chose to paint the Peace Pilgrim because “she stood up for what she believed in; and walked across the United States successfully six times for peace! She also lived a simple life, unlike many modern day "icons."

The Peace Pilgrim (July 18, 1908 – July 7, 1981) was an American non-denominational spiritual teacher and peace activist. In 1952 she became the first woman to walk the entire length of the Appalachian Trail in one season. She was on her seventh cross-country journey when she died. “In order for the world to become peaceful, people must become more peaceful. Among mature people war would not be a problem – it would be impossible. In their immaturity people want, at the same time, peace and the things which make war. However, people can mature just as children grow up. Yes, our institutions and our leaders reflect our immaturity, but as we mature we will elect better leaders and set up better institutions. It always comes back to the thing so many of us wish to avoid: working to improve ourselves.” Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Work in Her Own
Words (1992). Source: Wikipedia 


 Artist Bio:

 Paolo is a self-taught artist from the Philippines, currently residing in Queens, New York. He has always been interested in art and finally decided to paint in 2017. He often paints forgotten icons to shed light on their legacy, and to teach his peers and younger generations about the forgotten. He hopes that by sharing their stories, people in his generation and generations to come will be motivated to learn about the forgotten icons, and aspire to become like them instead of the modern-day influencers.
