Jacob Hicks is an internationally exhibited, Brooklyn-based oil painter & art educator. He shows with Gallery Henoch & teaches for the Queens Museum.

His art combines magical realism, biology, mono-mythology, notions of utopia, feminism, & social justice. Hicks received the W Paul Beck with Emerging Artist Grant, the Eric Fischl ‘66 Artist-In-Residence Teaching Grant, & has participated in residencies with the Saltonstall Foundation, the Spinnerei in Leipzig, Germany, & the Terra Foundation in Giverny, France.

Recent exhibitions include Cure/Rated at HOFA Gallery in London, and Allegory of Vanity at the 2022 Spring/Break Art Show with Kustera Projects in NYC. Hicks is currently curating As Above, So Below, a group exhibition for the 2023 Spring/Break Art Show. He also just completed a residency with the NFT platform Voice and the New York Academy of Art.

“I paint illusionistically and in flourishes of decoration. My work is a collage of cultural and personal symbolism, exploring gender, my queerness, and race.”
