About Alex


Working with oil paint on masonite panels, Alex Hall combines surrealism and figuration to create beautifully rendered, contemporary works. He draws inspiration from his own life encounters and the everyday struggles with which so many people can relate. Upon the panels of thin glazes and tight brush work, Hall creates pieces that are both euphoric and chaotic, giving rise to a distinct tension.

Born in 1988 just outside of Chicago, Illinois Alex grew up exposed to, and involved in, the arts. In 1996 he moved to Tennessee and is now proud to call Nashville his home. Hall graduated from Middle Tennessee State University in 2010 with a degree in adverting and marketing. While working in sales after college, Hall continued to pursue what he has always been most passionate about: painting. His contemporary approach to figure painting has recently been featured on the cover of the Nashville Arts magazine and on the ABC TV show, Nashville.

Alex Hall is one of the freshest artists that I have seen for quite a long time.
This young man's work is going to be noticed worldwide.

Weird

what is this supposed to be about

i think it was funny

good

i dotn really understand what it is

I think Alex Hall's work is absolutely amazing. I have had the distinct pleasure of viewing some of his originals (now showing in the Rymer Gallery, downtown Nashville) and I can tell you the detail in his pieces is astounding. Keep a watchful eye on this young artist - his work is way beyond his years, and he is definitely going places!
