    Hunt Slonem is an American painter and sculptor. He was born in Maine on July the 18, 1951. Slonem was born to an upper middle class family. He was the eldest of four children. His father was a Navy officer. His father’s career meant that their family moved around consistently, often being every two years. They lived in Hawaii, Virginia, Connecticut, California and Washington State. Slonem has mentioned how he grew up in a nurturing environment for his creativity, stating that “I grew up around painting, and my parents dabbled in painting themselves. I was given paints as a child, and I wanted to be a painter from first grade onwards”.


    Hunt Slonem is best known for his huge Neo-Expressionist oil paintings occupied by rows upon rows of birds, bunnies, and butterflies. Using thickly applied paint in highly lavish colours, his vibrant brushed strokes command the canvas. Slonem uses repetition within his subjects, this is often seen as a form of creative meditation.

    Over the years Slonem truly has mastered his craft. Throughout his education, Studying at Tulane University in New Orleans and then Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Slonem learned to hone his territory.
