About Hunt Slonem

Hunt Slonem is a world-renowned American painter, sculptor, and printmaker best known for his
Neo-Expressionist paintings of rabbits, tropical birds and exotic butterflies.

He spent his childhood moving between military bases. From growing orchids in Hawaii to chasing butterflies in Nicaragua, the places Slonem called home inspired him most. His tropical surroundings guided his process and passion for the nature and wildlife he emulates in his paintings. Slonem uses the term "exotica" to describe his artistry which draws from his roots with nature and an introspective use of repetition.

"I hope I'm remembered for reminding people to look at nature more.
It's vanishing at such a rapid rate... I hope my work lasts"

Slonem's work has been displayed in more than 300 one-man shows in galleries and museums across the world. His work is also in the permanent collections of 250 museums including the Smithsonian American Art Museum; the Brooklyn Museum of Art in Brooklyn, NY; Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, Spain; and the Würth Museum in Künzelsau, Germany.

Of the many accolades awarded to Hunt Slonem, one of the most recent is The Medal of Merit from The Russian Academy of Arts. This highest decoration dates back to the 18th Century.
