Born on the North Side of Chicago, Ron DiCianni grew up in an unlikely area to produce a talented artist. After attending the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Ron embarked on a career in commercial illustration. Quickly recognized as one of the nation’s most talented illustrators, Ron’s client list was soon dominated by the top companies in America.
One passion still overshadowed that success… the desire to reclaim the Arts for Christ. In 1989, he produced the painting that started a revolution…Spiritual Warfare. What began with one painting led into a whole market for Christian art products ranging from lithographs to books and a wide variety of derivative products.
No stranger to the book industry, Ron has collaborated on over 50 book projects and is a five-time winner of the Gold Medallion Award for Excellence in Christian Literature. These projects have generated multiple millions of copies in print and have been translated into languages all over the globe. With numerous awards for both his work as an author and as an artist, the response from the Christian and secular market to Ron’s work continues to be overwhelmingly strong.
Ron DiCianni currently lives in Southern California with his wife Pat.
