Today’s WOW, “A Path To A Cure” by artist Daniel Pollera, is special for 2 reasons. The first one, obviously, is the painting itself. Yes, it’s a painting. An impressive, almost breathtaking, piece of art. The second reason is related to its title, because this painting was commissioned by the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.

Samuel Waxman had asked me to do a painting that reflected the mission of the Foundation and he wanted to make it into a poster. Ideas were racing through my mind as I thought about losing my mother to cancer and other friends to this dreadful disease. Sam is dedicated to finding a cure. When you think about it, isn’t is reassuring to know that while we all wait to see if some day cancer will strike us or a loved one that somebody is out there working hard to find a cure? Sam is doing that, so I felt I needed to do my part to help him by creating this image.Daniel Pollera

Daniel Pollera’s interest in art began at a very young age gravitating toward drawing and painting the surrounding coastline of Long Island. After a short study at SUNY Farmingdale in Commercial Art, he left to enter the family business and for almost 15 years Daniel took a sabbatical from painting. He obtained a Captain’s License in 1977 from the United States Coast Guard and took passengers for hire on the open ocean. Through this experience and visual knowledge he was drawn to begin his painting again.

Although Daniel is primarily self taught he worked with Frances Norris Streit, a portrait and mural artist, assisting her on a 14’ X 30’ historical mural for the Roslyn Savings Bank. He also studied with Everett Molinari, a well respected President of the National Mural Society.

Daniel Pollera captivates his admirers by inspiring emotion and feeling through light and composition in his work.
