Aaron Pickens is a celebrated and rising artistic talent as well as a dedicated educator, fostering new artists through his teaching at area academic institutions and collaborations with other studios. His popular and thought-provoking paintings of toy tableaux demonstrate a strong duality of meaning and whimsy that explores matters of social justice, yet is accessible to the child within us all.
