Artist Hunt Slonem

Nav Bar


Every artist has one subject that when seen will immediately remind the viewer of that particular artist. For example: Dancers = Degas, Fruit = Cezanne, Landscapes = Homer. And now, Exotic Birds = Hunt Slonem.

Slonem's exotic birds are, in fact, his -- he raises and shares his NYC loft apartment with them. Since the 1980's, Slonem has used his birds as his dominate focus in his paintings. Through the use of rich, bright compositions, Slonem creates not only a source of visual pleasure, but of spiritual serenity. His belief that the natural world is a connector to the spiritual is truly transcended to us through each stroke of the paintbrush. Slonem's works have exhibited in museums around the world including The Metropolitan Museums of Art in New York and Manila Philippines, Miro Foundation, Spain, Pulitzer Collection, Amsterdam, Holland, Smithsonian Institute, Washington, DC, and Soloman Guggenheim Museum, NY, as well as numerous other private and public collections.
