As a fine artist whose discipline is drawing, Scott Hunt produces charcoal and pastel works on paper that are narrative and/or allegorical in nature. The critic, Ana Finel Honigman, asserts that the drawings are “meticulously crafted” and the gallerist, Robert Goff says that the works have “intensely enigmatic and mysterious subject matter. The viewer encounters a vision of America that is at once sympathetic, humorous, and apocalyptic.”
Hunt has had seven solo shows with: New Art Projects in London (2016), Coullaud & Koulinsky in Paris (2014); Schroeder Romero & Shredder in New York (2012); Goff + Rosenthal Galleries, two in New York, one in Berlin (2006–08); and Russell Projects in Richmond, VA (2010). Additionally, he had a solo presentation with Robert Goff Gallery at the NEXT CHICAGO art fair in 2010. His work has been included in group shows at: Wartburg State College, IA; Cream Contemporary, Berlin; Salomon Contemporary in Easthampton, NY; Coullaud & Koulinsky in Paris; and a show of 68 American contemporary artists curated by Beth Rudin deWoody at Shizaru Gallery in London.
As an illustrator, Hunt’s work has appeared in such publications as The New York Times, The New Yorker, Harpers,The Atlantic Monthly, Esquire (U.S. and Russia), The Boston Globe, and GQ Magazine. His book, Twice Told: Original Stories Inspired by Original Art (Dutton) was voted one of the Top Ten Art Books for Young Adults in 2006 by the American Library Association.
Hunt was awarded the 2017 FID Prize for Drawing. He is the recipient of a Fellowship from The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) as well as a grant from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation. His work is included in many international collections, including the Colecção Madeira Corporate Services Drawing Collection in Portugal.
