Ron Hicks is one of the most exciting young American artists forging a name for himself on the national art-scene. A native of Columbus, Ohio Ron has a background in commercial art that laid the technical foundation for his fine art career. Ron’s influences include the Seventeenth Century Dutch masters Van Dyck and Rubens. His painterly style uses deceivingly loose brushwork that somehow manages to create satisfying tangible space and depth in paintings whose subjects range from still-life to historical subjects. Both lovers of traditional oil painting and aficionados of contemporary art find his work collectible.
