Artist Biography

Born in Huntsville in 1927, Adickes graduated from Huntsville High School in 1943. Nearing the end of World War II, at age 17 he joined the Air Force and regularly traveled to France. “I always liked art and was always drawing in the margins of my book,” Adickes said. “But being in Paris where there are galleries and museums on every corner—as just a small town kid from Huntsville, Texas—that was my turning point.” After completing his service, Adickes returned to Huntsville and earned his bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State University. He then studied art with artist Fernand Leger in France for two years before moving to Houston to open his own art school.
