Hunt Slonem

About The Artist

Hunt Slonem was born in Kittery, Maine in 1951; the eldest of four children. As a result of his father’s military career, Slonem spent much of his childhood on different military bases; living in Hawaii, Virginia, Louisiana, Connecticut, California and Washington. After completing school, which included living in Nicaragua as an exchange student at the age of 16, Slonem began his undergraduate studies at Vanderbilt University. He then spent six months of his sophomore year at the University of the Americas in San Andres Colula, Puebla, Mexico, eventually graduating with a Bachelors of Art in Painting and Art History from Tulane University in New Orleans.Since 1977, Slonem’s work has been the subject of more than 300 one man shows and over 250 group exhibitions in renowned galleries and museums across the globe. In 2017, Slonem will publish two highly anticipated books: Birds (Glitterati, Spring 2017) and an untitled volume devoted to his monumental new mixed commercial/residential installation in Pennsylvania (Assouline, Fall 2017).

Purchase the brain


Hunt Slonem tends to embrace the ephemeral beauty of nature, a characteristic that brings a nurturing, spiritual effect to his creations. Throughout his extensive career as a New York artist, Slonem has favored the subject of exotic birds, rabbits, and butterflies. Lately, his compositions have consisted of flat spaces with simple forms pushed to the front of the picture plane. The artist creates exotic forms with expressive and highly textural brushstrokes that are full of intense color, loosely inspired by artists of the German Expressionism movement such as Ernst Ludwig and Emil Nolde.
