Alan 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 twins 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 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, they 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.
