About Warren Anthony Hicks
Warren Hicks was born and raised in Chickasha, Okla., and studied architectural design at Oklahoma State University. Prior to graduation, he moved to Miami, Fl., to explore opportunities within the music industry. After 12 years, Hicks briefly returned to architectural drafting and eventually landed in Chapel Hill, N.C. Still searching for the perfect creative outlet, he began painting in 2002.
Hicks’s artistic evolution has been as unique as his personal revolution. Self-taught, his experiences in the music industry and architectural drafting enrich his paintings with melodic imagery, striking colors and precise execution. Constant experimentation energizes Hicks with new ideas in visual art, as well as in his writings.
He has morphed through a progression of styles and influences—embracing, digesting, and discarding—always in search of the next challenge. This seemingly random hybridization of styles could go on productively for quite some time, it appears. Kandinsky, Arp, Miro, Braque, Klee, pureed in Hicks’s aesthetic, eclectic blender only to come out as, well, a Hicks original.
Hicks’s work has been shown throughout the U.S. as well as China and Macedonia. He currently lives in Chapel Hill and works in his studio at Golden Belt in downtown Durham, N.C.
