Wade’s World Foundation

The Wade Foundation Artwork

Juan Teague-Kirkman, Director of BT & Entertainment at the Hard Rock Hotel commissioned a piece for the Wade Foundation. After meeting Juan at the Listening Party for Janelle Monae she stated that she had a job for me. We exchanged contact information and we were able to discuss the matter of the “job “. I kindly followed up with a message and text regarding the artwork she wanted done.  She asked “Can you do a painting of Dwyane Wade (@DwyaneWade), his mom and sister (Tragil Wade @tragilwade)?”.  She thought that it will be such a great gift to the Wade foundation for the outstanding services they provide to our youth.  Within a time frame or deadline of a 1 day this piece was completed in 9 hours. You’re familiar with the phrase

“You can do anything if you out your Mind to it” 

This quote is SO true. Anything is life is attainable…


The Wades promotes this same phrase. According to the mission of the Wade World Foundation. The organization (WWF) provide support to various educational, health and family service programs, particularly those that benefit under served communities.

Founded in 2003, Wade’s World Foundation stands on the shoulders of its’ central purpose of promoting the education of children/youth and its’ three focus initiatives of literacy, health and fatherhood. Understanding that his life is bigger than basketball, Dwyane is a firm believer and supporter of the foundation’s motto “Every Child Deserves a Shot.” By primarily servicing the at-risk communities of Chicago, Milwaukee, and the South Florida region, Wade’s World Foundation is dedicated to providing opportunities that enable children to overcome challenges, excel academically, and reach their maximum potential.
