Born in Milwaukee, Aaron Fine moved to a dozen different homes in four college towns before he was 18. Raised in an intellectual, creative, politicized, and loving environment, Aaron had chosen his career as artist before kindergarten. He attended Ohio University in Athens Ohio, where he wrote a Philosophy honors thesis on Spinoza and received a BFA in Painting in 1993. Moving to Los Angeles, Mr. Fine attended Claremont Graduate University where he studied art in an interdisciplinary environment, learned the basics of drywall installation, and received his MFA in Painting in 1996.

In 1999 Aaron Fine accepted his current position at Truman State University where he is now Professor of Art and Department Chair. At Truman he met his wife, artist Priya Kambli. From August 2015 to May 2016 Mr. Fine was on sabbatical writing and drawing about color theory, including his book "Dialogues on Color" for Are Not Books and Publications. His current book project "Color Theory: A Critical Introduction" will be published by Bloomsbury Academic in 2020 or 2021.
