About

London-based artist Thompson Hall utilises abstracted symbols and text to shed light on issues of inequality in relation to politics, social change and marginalisation. To coincide with Autograph's display Thompson Hall: Inequality, Marginalisation and Social ChangeHall's artworks will be broadcast six metres high at the Old Street Digital Canvas in the heart of Shoreditch.

Hall’s journalistic art practice documents and explores his everyday experiences and current affairs. Working primarily in acrylic paint and pastels, he is influenced by the work of artists including Althea McNish, Ronald Moody and Kehinde Wiley. As Autograph’s artist-in-residence between March and May of this year, Hall used the creative time and space offered by the residency to develop his practice following Covid-19 related lockdowns. This display brings together the artist's past work with new paintings created during the residency, addressing issues of empire, social welfare, the cost-of-living crisis and the ongoing impacts of Covid-19.
