the artist

Michael Solovey, Col., U.S. Army

Owner and Artist at the Solovey Art Collection

Virginia-based artist, Col. Michael Solovey, has been honing his unique and diverse skills in fine art for over 25 years. Specializing in hand drawn original pieces depicting aspects of the military community, automobiles, sculpture, architectural renderings, landscapes and fine-art commissions, Solovey presents a truly unique take on art. 

Solovey’s evolution into military collages allowed him to introduce his 25-year military career into his art. 

“You see a lot of military art floating around, which is great and wonderful,” Solovey said. “But 95 percent of the military art out there isn’t done by guys who were actually there or that were actually in the service. Ten to 20 years from now, I hope that all of my work will be a chronological journal in pictures of the war from someone who was actually there. It will resonate well with others who served.”

During his 25-year military career, Solovey’s artistic perspective was influenced over the course of ten deployments between Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria & Kuwait and numerous tours to Germany and Italy.

Solovey is a 1996 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute where he earned a Bachelors of Arts in Fine Arts and Modern Languages. While traveling abroad during his junior year, he studied fine art at the Marchutz School of Art, Aix-en-Provence, France.
