John Hall is likened to an urban archaeologist: he produces still life
paintings that mine the rich complexity of contemporary urban life. He did
his training in art at the Alberta College of Art, Calgary and the Instituto
Allende, Mexico in the 1960s. Currently he holds a professorship emeritus
at the University of Calgary. He now lives and works in Kelowna, British
Columbia. John Hall was elected to membership in the Royal Canadian Academy
of Arts in 1975. His work can be seen at the Art Ark Gallery in British
Columbia, and found on the web at www.theartark.com.
