Hunt Slonem believes that, "We have become ecologically insane …as the human indifference to- outright disrespect for- the natural environment proves." Species of animals are quickly disappearing. Slonem wants to preserve the animals and jungles by means of art. Hunt Slonem has been a big supporter for the preservation of the panda bear.
Hunt Slonem's paintings are at once vibrant, energetic and colorful, yet also deeply spiritual and contemplative. Slonem utilizes the intense colors of the neo-expressional style that mirrors the interesting worlds in which these animals exist. He describes his work with one word, “Exotica.”
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.
