Autograph is delighted to announce a new publication, Colour is My Signature, the first monograph of works by London-based artist Thompson Hall. Primarily working with acrylic paint and pastel drawings, Hall’s often colourful palette takes inspiration from artists including Althea McNish, Ronald Moody and Kehinde Wiley. Through abstracted symbols and text, Hall’s work explores the inequalities of society and the world around him regarding politics, social change, racism and the impact that Covid-19 is having on our society.
Hall was the first on-site artist in residence at Autograph in 2022, and his work was displayed on our gallery in London.
