The Make Waves Fundraiser is excited to promote amazing work from ArtLifting’s artists. This product is exclusively for sale on Make Waves where proceeds will be matched by a private non-profit and donated to Autism Speaks.
William “Billy” Megargel, age 25, lives with autism and has barely uttered a word his entire life. Rather than speaking, Billy uses an arsenal of tools — artists’ brushes, ball tip whisks, paint rollers, rubber colanders, bamboo salad utensils, and bubble wrap — to create expressive modern paintings that command attention with their physical and emotional power.
Billy rakes, flicks, rolls, sprays, throws, and weaves paint onto canvases, resulting in works that are striking, original, and memorable combustions of color, texture, and physical virtuosity.
