WADE KONIAKOWSKY - The Art of the Ocean

"The ocean is my inspiration. My art is a reflection of this great
force that has shaped my life ." Wade Koniakowsky has spent his entire
life involved with the ocean and art. He is thought by many to be on the
cutting edge of the new-school of marine art.

Intrepid Spirit - Art That Heals.

So often I think of my art as adding to the visual interest of some interior space. But once in a while, I get a glimpse of the higher purpose of art. This was the case of 2 large oil paintings recently completed. The paintings were commissioned for the newly opened Intrepid Spirit traumatic brain injury treatment center on Camp Pendleton. The $11.5 million center is the seventh of nine such facilities at military bases across the country. It is funded by the New York-based nonprofit Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund founded in 2000 by Zachary Fisher, who also started the Fisher House Foundation for military families.

 The center will operate as a part of Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton to treat active-duty military patients who suffer from the physical and psychological effects of brain injury. The center will also provide education and other resources on brain injury for veterans and the wider community. The art was selected by a team that specializes in art for healthcare.

  Their focus is art that calms and gives hope to those under treatment. They selected some of my California oceanscapes: one depicting the Oceanside Pier (near the facility) and the other was of 15th Street Del Mar, one of my favorite scenes to paint for - the classic beauty of our local coastline.

It was inspiring to work on a project that brings good to the community of those who serve in our military and to see the great work being done by the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
