Hancock received a BFA from Texas A&M University, Commerce, Texas and an MFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, Philadelphia. Hancock makes prints, drawings, and collaged felt paintings which tell stories of a fantastical nature.
The characters which populate his imaginary worlds include the Mounds, half-animal, half-plant creatures, which are preyed upon by evil beings called vegans. The usual meaning of the word vegan is a human who avoids leather, meat, milk and other products considered by the vegan lifestyle to be unethical, but in Trenton Doyle Hancock's work these people with their ethical lifestyle are merely being used by these "vegan" creatures.
He is represented in New York by James Cohan Gallery.
