17, November 2014: When it comes to art, there’s few artists that are more widely viewed and more immersed in the art world than the ubertalented Alexander Liccione. With paintings using various mediums, videos, filmstrips, teaching credits, commissions and various collections to Liccione’s credit; this degreed artist has made his mark during his long-term career.

One major distinction that Alex Liccione has made is with Liccione’s original military-themed artwork. Between the years 2002-2003 Liccione did a series of paintings adapted from black and white photographs. They depict many aspects of military life. Some of the paintings evolved from photographs sent to Alex by surviving Veterans of World War II. Most of the artwork in the military series are oil on canvas pieces and some are watercolor paintings. The original paintings include invasion and pre-invasion images, stockpile images, hospital scenes, aerial views, crash scenes, attack scenes and more. One especially touching painting depicts a man in uniform sitting on a city bench with a sign asking for donations.

Liccione’s father was a military hero, so there are even paintings of him in various situations.

While Alex Liccione’s original military-themed artwork is only the tip of the iceberg, this artist seems determined to pay homage to those who have served their country in the Armed Forces.
