This year, Delbarton has twelve artists in the Class of 2024 who displayed their full Sustained Investigations at the annual AP Art Exhibit in the FAC.

Meet our next student artist, Ryan Hunt '24:

Ryan Hunt '24 AP Artist Spotlight

Hunt found comfort in using the left side of his brain and was always drawn to strategic activities such as sports, science, and math. It wasn't until his tenth birthday when his grandmother gave him a hand-painted birthday card that he discovered his love for painting. This opened his eyes to a whole new world of creativity and self-expression. "The magical scene inspired me, and from that moment on, I spent years fooling around with various artistic products and mediums from every corner and crevice in my house."

As he has gotten more serious in his artist journey, Hunt found he loves working with color and texture in his pieces which is what drove the interest behind his Sustained Investigation. "My sustained investigation focuses on the vibrance of color in various sweet foods (this plays into my lifelong sweet tooth my mother gave me)," he stated in his Artist Statement. "Some of my works utilize a contrast between a dull background and vibrant foods to emphasize the color in these creations."

"In the future, I want to continue to work with food displays as I find it enjoyable to explore what makes these displays psychologically appealing. I’d like to challenge myself with my art as I continue to build my portfolio and expand on my artistic abilities." We salute him and his fellow AP Art artists for their exceptional achievements in the arts at Delbarton this year!
