and Aaron Hicks are identical twin brothers from Chicago, Illinois.
Not only do they share the same facial features, but the same unique
talent as well.
Since the age of eight, the Allen and Aaron have shared an intense
desire to express their creativity through drawing. Over time, what
began as a journey of self-expression through art became a bona fide
passion to capture "life" with whatever media God placed in their
hands. The only question would be, "which hand?" because Alan
paints with his left hand, while Aaron paints with his right.
As the Hicks twins matured, the same passion that drove them to
create artistically also inspired them to hone their skills within
an academic environment. Thus, Alan and Aaron began to further
their education and their talent at the University of Illinois in
Chicago. In 1985, their perseverance and dedication paid off; the
twins received Bachelor of Arts degrees in Biocommunications/Medical
Illustrations from the University of Illinois.
Today, Allen and Aaron Hicks continue to stretch themselves as
artists and consistently strive for Godly perfection in their
work. Their spiritual and family oriented motifs have been
exhibited throughout the country and in numerous publications, such
as Ebony, Jet, and Upscale Magazine.
Whether or not Alan and Aaron paint an image together or single
handedly produce another stroke of beauty, the results are always
the same: they reveal an uncanny ability to achieve outstanding
color and detail in every airbrushed image.
