Hunt Slonem Bio

Hunt Slonem is a celebrated painter, sculptor and printmaker who has had more than 350 exhibitions at prestigious galleries and museums internationally. Slonem has traveled all over the world but it was his childhood spent in Hawaii, and a year studying in Nicaragua, that have had the most profound impact on his life's work. The vivid color combinations and exotic wildlife he encountered there inspire him to this day. The motifs he explored in his early works, tropical birds, butterflies, bunnies and portraits, have been reduced to their essence and have become reoccurring themes in his extraordinary art.
