Hunt Slonem: Obsessed with Rabbits

Set within vast collectibles from Victorian porcelains to American Gothic furniture, his works are truly a “feast for the eyes.” Slonem is featured in the exhibit at the Nassau County Museum of Art through November 4th.

Born in the Year of the Rabbit, New York City based artist and lifestyle trendsetter Hunt Slonem has an unusual daily routine. He paints rabbits on wood or Masonite for a half-hour after his morning cup of coffee. Once ‘warmed-up,’ Slonem is a creative force of nature.

Considered one of the great colorists of our time, Slonem is well known for his neo-expressionist portrayals of butterflies, rabbits and tropical birds. In addition to his paintings and sculptures, he shares his lively designs in creative collaborations—producing wallpaper, decorator fabrics, fashion accessories and other design projects with illustrious design partners such as Jason Wu and Lee Jofa. His historic mansion retreats and artist loft studios are perfect showcases for a lifetime of his unique creative endeavors.
