Artwork is in production and signing will take place in early October
During the month of March 2021, Ola Volo embarked on a 42-foot mural project in partnership with the YWCA Metro Vancouver to help bring the issue of domestic violence into the spotlight and raise money to support women and victims of abuse.
The "Wall for Women", located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, towers above the transit hub of Burrard St. and Melville St. This mural has become synonymous with women's rights and the fight against domestic abuse.
Due to the immense popularity of this mural and an innate desire to raise funds for women in need, Art Rapture, Ola Volo, Rethink Canada and the YWCA Metro Vancouver joined forces to produce a high quality limited edition print for collectors around the world.
ONE HOUR RELEASE - Limited edition print
Date: August 28, 2021
Time: 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PDT
Ola Volo made the "YWCA for Women" print available to collectors around the world via a one hour time release. The edition was limited to the number of units sold during 60 minutes. The final edition size is 372 prints.
$2775 was raised for the YWCA Metro Vancouver through acquisitions of this fine art print by Ola Volo.
"Coming onto this project, I thought a lot about what it takes to leave a domestic violence situation. It made me think of a powerful, brave queen who grants herself love and opportunities to thrive. Crown held high, she’s looking forward to the future, protecting the fragile bird companion on her shoulder, and rising above the snake that’s trying to hold her down.
I wanted the woman in this artwork to claim her confidence and her power back by taking up space. She isn’t small or fading into the background. She’s front and centre, and commands the attention she deserves – even in the busy streets of downtown Vancouver." - Ola Volo
