ABOUT THE ARTIST

New York-based artist Hunt Slonem is an American painter, sculptor, and printmaker, well-known for his Neo-Expressionist works featuring butterflies, rabbits, and tropical birds. Considered one of the great colorists of his time, Slonem’s gestural and extraordinarily vibrant portraits of wildlife immortalize and celebrate each species while honoring the exuberance and diversity of life itself.

Slonem studied painting at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, Vanderbilt University, and Tulane University. He has had over 300 solo exhibitions worldwide and is held in the collections of more than 100 museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. An accomplished designer, decorator, and restorer of homes as well as an artist, Slonem’s work on these transcendent and colorful spaces has been featured in House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, and The New York Times.
