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, Christie’s, Royal Academy of Arts, Richard Ginori, Svenskt Tenn and Habitat. Luke has exhibited his drawings, paintings and ceramics in London, Stockholm, Athens and the United States.
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. September 2019 saw the release of Luke’s first book, Greco Disco: The Art & Design of Luke Edward Hall, a scrapbook-meets-portfolio introducing Luke's creative world and highlighting his favourite projects to date, published by teNeues. In the autumn of 2020 Luke’s first large interior design project opened in Paris: a thirty-three bedroom hotel and bistro in the city's 10th arrondissement. He is currently working on his second book and various new interior design projects.
