Aiken began painting in 1929 after studying at the AIC, the Millikin School of Art (Illinois), and Art Center School in Los Angeles. During the 1930s and 1940s he worked in Sacramento as a commercial artist at Weinstock-Lubin Company. A surrealist, in his leisure he painted non-representational figures, faces, and forms.
