Luke Edward Hall is an English artist and designer, and columnist. Luke’s philosophy is shaped by his love of storytelling and fantasy. His colourful work is often inspired by history, filtered through a lens of irreverent romanticism.
Since founding his studio in 2015, Luke has worked on a broad range of commissions, from interior design and fashion projects to murals and illustration work for books, restaurants and hotels. He has collaborated with a variety of companies and institutions including Burberry, Lanvin, Ginori 1735, Svenskt Tenn and Rubelli. Luke exhibits his drawings and paintings internationally with Athens-based gallery The Breeder. In March 2019 he joined the Financial Times as a weekly columnist in FT Weekend, answering readers’ questions on aesthetics, interior design and stylish living.
Luke's exhibition of drawings, paintings and ceramics, Figs and Honey and Sailing, opened at The Breeder in Athens in January 2021.
