BIOGRAPHY:
He grew up in his father's commercial art studio in downtown Los Angeles, where he was taught to draw and paint almost before he could walk.
After attending Otis Art Institute, and while still in high school at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, and San Jose State University, Ren began his career in advertising as an agency art director. He worked with the top artists, designers, and film directors in Los Angeles and New York for almost 30
years, creating and directing many memorable and award winning advertising campaigns.
Wicks was an all-around artist, in a career that included NASA and postage stamps, but he excelled at two subjects in particular: wings and women. During WW2, he worked for Lockheed, contributing artwork for fighters and bombers that was used both in ad campaigns and in pilot handbooks. During the
same period, Howard Hughes tapped him to do poster work for RKO, most memorably for Jane Russell in The Outlaw. Magazine illustration for Esquire, Redbook, Saturday Evening Post, Coronet. Ad work for Kotex, Edwards Coffee, and swimwear companies. Did several calendars and portfolios for Casinos in
the 1960s (Harrah's, Harolds Club).
