Art enables us to see the world through a new lens and make a difference through it.
It is by no insignificant serendipity that the art of William Wolk (1951-2022) captures the rainbow essence of Seva Co-Founder, Wavy Gravy. The thread that ties Wolk and his wife Marie to our foundation is deep and meaningful. For nearly a quarter century, they have supported Seva as charitable donors and tireless advocates because of their personal conscious awareness and commitment to help people 'see' on so many levels.
In celebration of Wavy's 86th birthday and in support of the philanthropic work of the Seva Foundation, Wolk honors the playful spirit with vision, color, and a bit of joyful whimsey that is Wavy Gravy, in "Bubblicious" the final piece the artist completed prior to his passing this past May.
Not unlike the founders of Seva, William Wolk used his passion and artistic gifts to express his vision and bring his unique insight to the world through his inimitable art. It is fitting that this brilliant piece, filled with love and light, comes to us so that we can transform this 'energy' toward the work of our foundation through your generous auction bid this coming fall. All proceeds benefit our sight-restoration efforts – keep an eye out for more details.
Yours in gratitude,
William Wolk Fine Art
In the meantime, learn more about the inspiration behind the portrait from Wolk directly, through this pre-recorded video in the artists' own voice:
Miami born William Wolk began drawing free-hand charcoal portraits at just 8 years old. By age nine, he was already diligently painting in oils at his rickety easel. When he was 18, the gifted young artist moved to Italy to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, intensely engaged in self-study throughout the city's magnificent museums and cathedrals. When he returned home the following year, he launched his artistic career with a vibrant one-man show, devoting the rest of his life to his passion: his art.
