About

Hunt Slonem "Purple 2 Dip" Double Bunnies Two black outline bunnies on purple background Unframed: 10 x 8 inches Framed: 16.5 x 14.5 inches *Painting is framed - Please note that not all Hunt Slonem frames are not in mint condition. There may be signs of wear and tear due to the age and history Hunt Slonem is a well-renowned American artist known for his neo-expressionist paintings of butterflies, rabbits, and tropical birds. The artist creates exotic forms with expressive and highly textural brushstrokes that are full of intense color. His compositions often consist of flat spaces with simple forms pushed to the front of the picture plane. His work tends to embrace the ephemeral beauty of nature, a characteristic that brings a nurturing, spiritual effect to his painting suggesting metamorphosis, repose, and a sensation of touching the illimitable. In addition, Slonem works with installations, sculpture, and the restoration of historic spaces, often pairing his paintings with collected objects and various materials to create colorfully monumental environments that are widely noted for their otherworldliness.

About the Artist

Hunt Slonem

“I believe in repetition like a holy mantra or rosary,” neo-Expressionist painter Hunt Slonem told Introspective, referring to his artistic method. “I am slightly influenced by Pop art, like the repetition of soup cans, postage stamps and celebrities. It’s something I have been doing my whole life.”

Slonem, who often depicts birds, rendered in thick, gestural brushstrokes and arranged in a loose grid, developed his fascination with tropical avian life during a childhood spent in Hawaii and Nicaragua. Today, his 30,000-square-foot studio in Brooklyn contains an aviary, along with a personal garden, a collection of antiques and walls and walls of artworks.

Besides birds, Slonem also paints bunnies — so many that they’ve become a signature. Limned in expressive, urgent strokes on flat, vibrantly colored backgrounds, these creatures fascinate through their subtle variations. “I have painted hundreds of rabbits, but each one is different,” the artist has explained. “Each has its own personality, and it just comes through me.”

The multitalented Slonem also sculpts, makes prints, creates installations and restores historic spaces. His work has achieved cult status among collectors and is represented in the permanent collections of such esteemed institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Slonem has even made an appearance on Real Housewives of New York.
