OKAVARK KRAVAKO

Eric B. Kravako's avatar Eric B. Kravako

After years of development, the butterfly has hatched into a beautiful oil painting on a hand-crafted canvas. Named the Okavark Kravako, the butterfly represents symmetry, balance, peace and beauty. It was named Okavark Kravako due to the symmetry in its title as well as the fact that it showcases my family's name. The canvas is constructed using 55 canvases that are bolted together to form one piece. The butterfly serves as a "front drop" that will be displayed on the side of the bus. The butterfly is the entry, however, the conversations around the bus represent its overall purpose. The butterfly serves as a vessel for peace and artistic conversation. I hope each person approaches the butterfly and is overcome by a sense of balance and beauty. I see a world where families are able to relate and have conversation centered around the arts, where bonds are healed, where joy and love are commonly felt, and where laughter becomes contagious again.
