Business Playmakers is honored to present Aaron Kizer. Aaron is a renowned artist, known for his unique style of painting in which he paints portraits up side down in a matter of minutes. Paintings are done live as an audience watches a masterpiece come together before their very eyes, and met with erupting applause as Aaron turns the painting right side up to reveal the image of an iconic celebrity.

Aaron grew up as the son of an entrepreneur Nelson Kizer who has been the motivation behind Aaron’s success as well as the reason for his beginnings as an artist. Nelson owned a construction company, and while working for the company, Aaron would use the walls of homes and businesses as his canvas. Even though this angered Nelson because after painting over it, the faces created by Aaron could be still be seen on the walls, it was Nelson who encouraged Aaron to pursue his dream of showing the world his talents.

Years later, Aaron Kizer has had a very successful career and amazing opportunities to work with other talented individuals in the process. Aaron has done shows with Grammy Award winning Lazie and Krazie Bone of the Hip Hop group Bone Thugs in Harmony, and 2016 NBA Rookie of the Year Karl Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Through his talent and art Aaron has been able to work and form partnerships with companies such as Makers Mark, British Petroleum and NASA. Aaron’s work can be found on the album cover of recording artist Talib Kweli in the form of the rapper's portrait, as well as featured in articles by Complex News, Yahoo News, and the Wall Street Journal. Aaron has also used his celebrity to contribute to select non-profits such as the American Cancer Society, Wendell Foster, and St. Jude.
