Chicago, IL—October 28, 2011: Chicago artists Alan and Aaron Hicks are partnering with Urban Ministries, Inc. (UMI) to present their acclaimed religious paintings in two new inspirational 13-month wall calendars for 2012.
The twin Hicks brothers are renowned in the African-American community for their culturally relevant representations of people of color in the biblical experience. According to their website, “Their spiritual and family-oriented motifs have been exhibited throughout the country and in numerous publications such as Ebony, Jet, and Upscale magazines.”
Executed in the medium of airbrush on canvas, the Hicks twins’ paintings portray themes that include family life, religion, prayer, and Bible stories. This positive cultural representation of African Americans has drawn a devoted following.
The newly released 2012 wall calendars from UMI are the first to feature the Hicks brothers’ artwork in this format. Two titles are available: “Faith,” which features illustrations of Bible stories and scriptural themes, and “Hope,” which inspire through its images of children and family life.
As well as 13 full-color paintings, the calendars include Bible verses for each month and the birthdates of notable figures who have made African-American history. These features make each calendar an attractive purchase for the holidays and for the new year.
UMI is excited to partner with the Hicks brothers to release this combination of fine artwork and scriptural inspiration.
