Artist in the Spotlight - Ken Hall

With my work, I seek to harmonize the natural and spiritual world with our modern lifestyles, bringing balance to our souls.

Artist Biography

Ken spent over 12 years in the UK as an Art Director in the computer games industry, publishing several award-winning and ground breaking titles. He decided to return to his roots as a sculptor, and came back to Canada in 2008 to focus on creating artwork full-time and now creates fine art and architectural sculpture in stone, metal, and wood.

Ken has completed corporate commissions for clients including Summer Fresh Salads and Antofagasta Minerals, and civic commissions for Downtown Georgetown and the Orangeville Courthouse. Ken recently created the branding and interior design for the Bistro Burger Joint restaurant in Alliston, fabricating hand-made wood and steel furniture and fixtures and melding these with cutting-edge graphic elements.

He has attended prestigious shows such as the McMichael Autumn Art Sale, and undertakes public installations. He was featured as an ‘Artist to Collect’ in Arabella - Canadian Art, Architecture & Design, and was a finalist for the 2011 NICHE award in the Outdoor Art category.

Artist Statement

I am inspired by the delicate balance between strength and fragility that is present in nature. I aim to capture the light and ethereal qualities of natural creation while crafting pieces with substance and permanence. I strive to distill the essence of the world around me and express that energy in three dimensional forms, showcasing  my inspiration and giving it voice with beauty and grace.
