Glitterati Publishing / Authors Hunt Slonem, Foreword by Jacqueline Bograd Weld & Essay by Anthony Haden-Guest. Influenced by the exotic, lush landscapes of his childhood and youth in Hawaii and Nicaragua, Hunt Slonem paints richly coloured, impressionistic visions that are celebrated worldwide. Particularly sought after are his paintings of birds. Now for the first time, Slonem's bird paintings are collected into a single volume, published in a lavish hardcover edition. In Birds, the Louisiana-born artist pays homage to these remarkable creatures through hundreds of engaging artworks. Dramatic and vivid, Slonem's avian subjects seem unconfined to a flat surface, as the paintings brim with texture and movement. Sure to please bird-lovers and fine art aficionados alike, this is a sumptuous hardcover volume that features metallic ink and silver gilded edges, a ribbon marker and an acetate jacket.


Hunt Slonem

 

Inspired by nature and his 60 pet birds, Hunt Slonem is renowned for his distinct neo-expressionist style. He is best known for his series of bunnies, butterflies and tropical birds, as well as his large-scale sculptures and restorations of forgotten historic homes. Slonem’s works can be found in the permanent collections of 250 museums around the world, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Whitney, the Miro Foundation and the New Orleans Museum of Art.His flair and admiration for far-flung destinations has been a staple of his life since childhood. Slonem was born in 1951 in Kittery, Maine, and his father’s position as a Navy officer meant the family moved often during Hunt’s formative years, including extended stays in Hawaii, California and Connecticut. He would continue to seek out travel opportunities throughout his young-adult years, studying abroad in Nicaragua and Mexico; these eye-opening experiences imbued him with an appreciation for tropical landscapes that would influence his unique style.
