Artistic Range: Larry Cocchiarella

Posted By on Fri, Mar 11, 2011 at 5:00 PM

Local artist Larry Cocchiarella uses flagstone to create some very unique art. He sketches his designs onto flagstone, then cuts them out and paints them. He recently did a piece for Christina Taylor Green's memorial. That piece is now displayed in the family's entryway. He also donated a piece of his art to Lizzie Bell, a girl whose family was on an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, here in Tucson.

Right now, Cocchiarella is working on a piece for the 10 year anniversary of Sept. 11. His goal is to have it shipped to New York to be auctioned off, the proceeds from it going toward the 9/11 Memorial Fund.

Cocchiarella is a member of the Tucson Arts & Crafts Association. He displays and sells his art at various shows around town.

To learn more about Cocchiarella's art or to get in touch with him, visit his facebook page.
