About this title


The Worlds of Hunt Slonem investigates the life and work of this fascinating American artist. Once the enfant terrible of New York’s art world, Hunt Slonem (b. 1951) depicts both natural subjects—birds and butterflies—and portraits—voodoo saints and Abraham Lincoln–in his jubilant, singular paintings. Using multiplicity as a governing principle, Slonem has created a body of work as inimitable—and wildly colorful—as it is recognizable. This in-depth monograph, which spans Slonem’s boyhood in Hawaii to his training at Tulane University and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture to his life today, split between New York and New Orleans, features more than 600 vibrant illustrations. Dominique Nahas delves deep beneath the decorative surface of Slonem’s work to reveal what informs and influences this original and enigmatic artist.

Praise for The Worlds of Hunt Slonem:
"The Worlds of Hunt Slonem
[is] an eye-popping survey of more than 600 illustrations by the legendary style setter." -Houston Chronicle
