Gazette Premium Content Pop artist Fazzino to create Warrior Games art

By Stephanie Earls Published: May 13, 2013

New York-based pop artist Charles Fazzino has been tapped to create the official artwork for the 2013 Warrior Games, which open Saturday in Colorado Springs.

Known for vibrant, highly-detailed silk screens that create a feeling of three-dimensionality, Fazzino is an officially licensed artist for the U.S. Olympic Committee, the NFL and Major League Baseball, among others. His numerous commissions include the creation of art for the NASCAR Sprint Cup series, the NHL All-Star Game, the Belmont Stakes, the Indianapolis 500 and the Grammy Awards. His work is exhibited at hundreds of museums and galleries worldwide.

'I am proud to be involved with an event as patriotic as the Warrior Games, ' Fazzino said. 'These incredible men and women have sacrificed so much for us and they deserve not only to be recognized for what they have done, but to be celebrated for all they have yet to achieve. '

Fazzino's original Warrior Games artwork will appear on the cover of event programs, and posters and limited-edition prints will be available for purchase at the games.

Fazzino's work 'truly celebrates the spirit of sport and the impact it can have on service members and veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedom, ' said Charlie Huebner, the U.S. Olympic Committee's Chief of Paralympics.
