Original, one-of-a-kind mixed media fine art collectible for desktop or wall mounting. Backdrop of highly colorful water-based paints, personally hand painted on canvas by Susan M. Kaineg, CEO, founder and art director at Be OUTSPOKEN. This canvas is carefully wrapped and affixed around a composite plate to ensure a beautiful side profile and enhanced visibility of the painted background of this unique statement piece. All interior art elements are fully protected and enclosed in a beautiful museum-class vitrine. The back of the piece is gloss black with printed inspiration from the design and signed by the artist.

This fine art collectible is from our signature award-winning design MAKE WAVES series, produced giclée style on optically clear acrylic, hovering above the painted canvas.  A 3D sculpture surrounds the outer perimeter, created in laser cut metal and raised 1” from the canvas surface. It is plated in a light sky blue and embellished with socially conscious phrases.

To disturb a situation by changing things or by challenging the way things are done, often in a way that improves the situation.

Dedicated to Malala Yousafzai, outspoken social activist and Nobel Laureate.

“We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.”

“I raise up my voice – not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard...we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.”

As a young teenager, Malala spoke out publicly against the prohibition on the education of girls that was imposed by the Tehrik-e-Taliban in Pakistan. She gained global attention when she survived an assassination attempt at age 15 yet continues to courageously speak out for the value of education for girls globally.


Throughout history, the inaction or indifference of those silent voices have made it possible for the oppressor, the bully, the tyrant, the abuser to triumph. That old saying, “it takes a village to raise a child”— well, if the whole village decides to ignore what’s wrong, if no one says or does anything, then greater frequency and magnitude of injustice occurs.

Each time one chooses to broadcast truthful and mindful words, a tiny ripple of hope reverberates, not only for oneself, but for those who cannot speak in their defense. I know this subject well, because I was sexually abused as a child and my plight was met with silent cowards.

We have more power than we know, but we need to speak out and claim that power for ourselves and those who do not (yet) have a voice. Thus — the art of Make Waves, an utterly simple design with profound meaning to me.
