George Hunt is an artist with a "gift" for seeing things differently than most people. Born in 1940 in rural Lake Charles, Louisiana. George was delivered into the world in a sugarcane field by the hands of his great grandmother. His single mother, grandmother, and great grandmother reared him.
In 1960, Hunt earned his BA dress from University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. In the early sixties he studied under Hale Woodruff. "Ive always liked Picasso's work," says George Hunt. He is also inspired by the work of Romare Bearden, Charles Alston, and Modigliani. The person who he feels had the most impact on his work although informally, was Dewitt Jordan.
Most of his work is influenced by African American experiences in the South.
