Eric Kravako is a full time artist whose mission is to teach and inspire art to the world. Kravako's paintings revolve around inspiring people and having conversations around the art, which certainly is reflected in the vibrant colors, whimsical woodland characters and engaging depictions of nature that are found in Campfire Stu & The Backwoods Jamboree. Guided by the original black and white illustration designs of Arizona based artist Mychael Lee, Kravako re-created the Backwoods Jamboree drawings in his renovated mobile bus studio (Okavark Studios) which has been featured in Grand Rapids, MI ArtPrize three years in a row (2013-16). Along with providing inspiration for his own work, the Okavark bus is used as a vehicle for creativity and muse, offering tours and mini-lessons to children around the country. Kravako and his bus are available for special events, book signings, concerts and parades.
