Ronald Hall’s paintings are a kaleidoscopic fusion of urban energy and figurative narrative, drawing together references from African diaspora histories, the Civil Rights Movement, digital culture, Western art, science fiction as well as personal narratives. Woven together, Hall produces works that attempt to challenge the viewers interpretation of what contemporary Black art is. Growing up amidst the crime ridden neighbourhoods of Pittsburgh has led him to see art as both an informative and educational teaching tool.
Hall’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and art museums internationally and throughout the USA, most recently with a solo at Duane Thomas Gallery, New York 2020. He is an alumnus of Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture as well as the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, where he studied illustration.
