Bio: Kenneth A. Licht was born the son of an architect, from whom he learned to draw, on 12/24/23, in Englewood, NJ. He cartooned in high school, and won a full scholarship to Tyler School of Fine Art of Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. Receiving a Master's in Education from the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ, he developed a love for the southwest. Moving to the east coast once more, he became a professional architectural renderer for Ferno, Kempa and Schwartz in New York City, NY. It was from teacher Robert Schwartz, and later Dong Kingman of the West Coast, that Kenneth refined his watercolor technique. He soon went on to establish his own business in architectural illustration, and during his lifetime did more than 3,000 renderings for architects. But his love remained with fine arts, and he works in almost all mediums: oils, pastels, tempera, alkyd, ink, pencil, silver jewelry, sculpture and boxes of found objects in the style of Joseph Cornell. Watercolors are a great favorite. At the time of his death in February, 2016, his collection consisted of 534 paintings and 220 found object box sculptures. He has had numerous one-man shows and his box constructions are in the Bergen Museum of Art and Science, in Bergen County, New Jersey.
