"Slonem is an internationally recognised American painter, sculptor and printmaker. Inspired by nature and his 60 pet birds, 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," says publicity material.
His work has been exhibited in more than 350 galleries and museums worldwide, and is represented in over 100 museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim and the Whitney Museum of American Art, in New York City.
The “Magical World” of Hunt Slonem’s art at Daugavpils Mark Rothko art Centre is the artist’s first show in the Baltic States. It will remain on public display from 3 July until 18 October.
